Got my DI unit from purewaterclub. Installed and back to 0ppm TDS. Filling my 44 gallon brute for a big water change and will get fish on friday. I think I will be buying the ro/di unit from BRS in the next group buy. Wont be able to buy it on this one since I will be spending the money on fish and really dont need it right now. Getting excited to get this tank running.

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

Ask and you shall receive! Floating now but will take more when he is in the tank. What do you guys think about a small yellow tang in this tank for the next year or so until I make my 140G saltwater? My daughter wants a yellow really bad and I know that I am going to upgrade in the next year.






He is about 3-4 inches and beautiful! My first tang (small teardrop falls).

Love the tang!

Not sure i would get the yellow now, I was in the same spot, I knew i was upgrading and really wanted one but decided to wait til I actually got the big tank up and running. Glad I did.

Thanks carey! At my LFS they have a black tang. I am not considering getting it, but it is only $169 and they are on LA for $899. My lfs ships too, so if anyone is interested I will PM the name of the shop. I am also looking at a pair of black saddleback clowns at the same shop for $129 for the pair.

Tank video

Took a video of the tank up and running. Couldnt get a shot of the Kole, since he still hides out quite a bit.

Any comments/suggestions??? I am hoping that water changes and the CUC take care of the algae problems. I think it all stemmed from the DI unit needing to be replaced. I know the snails and crabs are making a dent in it though.
