I think the 5 stage BRS unit has a back flush kit with it. I will look into that. I got the pure water club one and I dont think you can back flush it.

As far as the fish deaths, I can only assume that the foxface brought in brooklynella or marine velvet. I am going to leave the tank with just the corals and the coral beauty in it for a month or so and go from there.

Yes, the 5 stage is what I have and it has a backflush valve. While it would be great if it was auto like Jon's, it isn't too bad to just flip the valve for a minute after you run water.

Did you get the plus model with the gauges and TDS meter?

Yes. If you can get it on a group buy it is pretty significant savings.

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

I coincidentally made $180 bowling last night. Looks like I will be in on the group buy! Also just got the phosphate checker. Carey, is there a trick to getting the powder into the glass container with out spilling all over? Also, you have to test the clear water first, then add the reagent right? Then test again?

Yep, the water with no reagant gets scanned first in the device so there is a baseline for comparing. I rip off the packet top and fold the packet so that a small spout forms and then add the powder like that. Much much eaiser. lol

Thanks carey. So, is my plan to leave the coral beauty and the corals in the tank for a month or so a good decision? I was thinking back to your wipeout and feel the same way you did. I dont know what happened, but all seems good now. I dont want to put fish back in for a while though. Will wait 4-6 weeks and add one fish at a time. Good plan?
