Woohooo!!! Lol... I would give you the rest of my mag, but I'm starting to like what it does with the corals. Since im buying the gfo reactor, I'll tell you how it takes care of the algae.. It's nasty stuff though. Harder than cyano for sure, luckily that's all ive dealt with.

Yeah, I'm not overly concerned about it. I've been watching it for about 2 months not realizing what it was. Removed about a shot glass full of it...for you youngins that isn't very much

Lol gotcha. I used to have an emerald crab who loved the stuff, wish he was still around. Luckily none of the corals are bothered by it except for the zoas, but I've been dipping them in hydrogen peroxide to kill of the algae, it works really well and the zoas are always fine after it.

I don't know what I'm going to do.. My rodi unit just fell over and the plastic nub that goes to the membrane broke off. I'm going to try to glue it back on.. But I doubt it will work. I don't have the money to get a new unit and nobody sells rodi water locally, just ro and distilled. What should I do?

Just buy the needed parts for it from brs instead of a whole unit. Until then topping off with RO shouldn't be terrible. Sorry to hear about it though I'm always worried about this happening to me since I just stand mine next to the sink : /

You may also find that part at Lowes. They have lots of those types of parts. I fixed both my mother's and my brother's RO units with parts from Lowes. If you can bring it in with you it'll help a lot. Never glue in a broken part. It can get stuck and ruin the filter housing or be impossible to remove without damaging the housing.

Honestly I might just do that. The di is new and everything else is okay.

Unfortunately it was the housing that broke, just got home and checked. Thanks for the advice though. And yeah, I never glued it, thank god I didn't break anything else lol.
