That's the kind of stuff I like to hear. One of my favorite sayings is.....I hate the phrase "Someone should" and much prefer "Wow, that wasn't so bad". LOL

Well the car is in the shop now, just went in the other day, had to do some re-arranging of funds. But it will probably be some time before i get a big tank up and runnning, but it's not going to stop me from having a new tank going. I think i'm gonna start out smaller with a 30 gallon. I started a thread about it. I already have the tank, just need to get started and get a RO/DI unit, AC70 filter, and some rock. Going to do that in the next couple days, just not sure which RO/DI to go with. Most likely the one Carey had showed me off Ebay.

The one she recommends is great. I bought one (I went with the 150 gal/day) and it has been doing fantastic.

Did you buy it off Ebay?

Do you have to call them to request the garden hose attachment?

Do you have to buy any additional tubing?

28 Gallon SW Build...hopefully...

Coffee - Since this one is on hold and I am able to afford a smaller build you can follow this one...just bought everything today...alot cheaper than i thought. Figured it would be a good starting point to get the basic's of SW and reef keeping instead of unloading thousands of dollars and sucking at it...lol

Thank you. I've got a smaller tank that I'm just going to do a fowlr in it. It's been slow just on that for me too
