I make my water from the gardenhouse outside on my deck. I keep my 32g brute trash can out there too.

You can get an adpator for hard plumb into your sink, a faucet adaptor or the garden hose adaptor.

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

Update

I purchased another timer for my light schedule which is now fully set up and looking nice. I also bought 5 gallons of distilled water. It was 88 cents a gallon. I will be asking for that Rodi unit for Christmas. It seems like everything is starting to come together now in the tank and I'm quite excited for December 3rd, when I'll be adding most of my low biological load livestock. I might buy my cardinal there also. The trates are still at >5 but no change in the diatoms, if anything it's increasing. Its mostly on the sand and rock because it's so easy to wipe off of glass. Also, Over the past week I've been seeing a lot of broken white shells and chips of things rise to the sand. Is that my cuc digging things out of the sand or is it them tearing my rockwork apart? It doesnt look much like my rock though..

They aren't from the hermit shells I bought. They are chalky white.

Thats weird, then. Are the hermits and snails doing a good job of keeping your tank pretty tidy?

I didn't get any snails yet as I was told by the lfs that I didn't need them right now. It surprised me that they said that and didnt just try to get more profit. The hermits are doing a pretty good job at cleaning but it could be better. I still have a decent amount of diatoms so I can't really say they are that great.
