Well, you'll need the plumbing parts, whether it be hose or pvc.

As far as equipment, I have 2 1400 koralias in my 90g fish only and a skimmer. You could make your own sump from a regular aquarium or get a premade one, I've gone both routes. And finally you'd need a return pump, I use a mag 9.5 on mine.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I'm a truck driver and I know how costly a saltwater can be I'm doing little by little. Learning each item one at a time. I got the tank and stand but with my stand I got to make a few cuts in it for plumbing and don't want to over cut it. My next step is to get sump and skimmer and return pump.

Thanks that's helpful. Giving me names work best for me so I can look it up and read up on it. So thanks for that

Bulkreefsupply.com did a 3-part series on RODI units.
Why use RO/DI in Reef Tanks? EP: 1 Aquarium Reverse Osmosis - YouTube

also heres a link to their RODI units. great product that youll be happy you bought.
http://www.bulkreefsupply.com/bulk-r...s-systems.html

id recommend the 4-stage value plus at the minimum ( it comes with dual-TDS meter, pressure valve, and Auto shutoff valve pre-installed)

if you have the budget, and the water pressure for it, id recommend the 150 gpd upgrade kit.

Yea I seen those videos. How long would it take to fill up my tank with that system. Cause it says 75gpd is that having the sink running all day and storing the water in a tank that's what I'm confused on
