cool .. thanks for the follow up.
found some articles on it. seems there isnt a ton of diff between RO
and distilled, as long as the distilled has been steamed distilled. Guess some places use copper pipes to distill the water and as i have read copper = bad mojo.
Beyond that its a matter of fig out whats cheaper. I was under the assumtion that it was about a 70/30 ratio makeing RO
water. The 30 being your RO
I deff like asking questions on here as u get RL experience answers vs the LFS
trying to sell you something < not all do but you know what i mean.>.
That leads to ...
what is a solid durable RO
unit that wont break the bank? (best bang for the buck, I'm leaning towards either a 45 gal
bow front or a standard 65 gal
tank. Both are only 36" long as im tight for useable space if that helps at all>
I've seem them as low as 80bucks on up to 400.
I see roka64 has a link posted for a RO
unit and makes a very good point bout LFS
being closed. I found this one doing a search http://www.freedrinkingwater.com/ro-45-detail.htm
Also a question on sump tanks.
As I understand it its just an extra tank or tub that goes under the show tank. All your skimmer and heater can hook up to that. Id also have to make sure that I got a "Reef Ready" tank in order to use a sump system. I have also found that All Glass aquarium makes sump systems. Im going to assume < yea i know what assume does but im doing it anyways> that these all glass systems are a tad more expensive then just useing a 20 gal
tank for a sump system. What else do I need to know bout this neat little trick to keeping my tank clear of clutter?
