Thank you for everything but one more question instead of buying an ro/di system(cause there so expensive) could I just go to a store and buy ro/di water?

looks nice.. I mean you can buy the water it will save you money in long run to have your own unit though. plus if you have an emergency and the fish store isn't open your screwed for getting water

If your gonna do weekly water changes the RO unit will pay for itself in 6 months tops. Not to mention the convenience.

Right but it will be a lot cheaper to buy a high quality salt and make RO water to mix the saltwater yourself. I bet if you test petco saltwater the Ca and Alk levels won't be too good
