What are your opinions on this stuff?

Found this searching around .... and was wondering what you all think about it!


God grant me the serenity to accept the thing's I can not change, the courage to change the thing's I can and the wisdom to know the difference!

Looks expensive to me!!!!! You can get 5 gallons of ro/di for 2.50 and a bag of salt for 10 (75 gallons of treating). Don't know what benefits over the salt it would have. PLus shipping on that is 15!!!!!!! so 25 bucks for 5 gallons!!! not worth it to me!!!!!

Unnecessary. The most expensive R/O water I've seen was only 33cents a gallon. Salt is cheap too.

i laughed when i first saw it in the store. but then i thought if you had a nano reef, it sure would be convenient.

i honestly have considered driving to the beach and filling a large sistern in the back of a pickup and bringing it home. it would be enough sea water for a whole year or more...

it would obviously need to be filtered first.

a friend of mine had an aquarium business in fla. and he used natural sea water. he drove a van with a large tank and pump and hose. when he did water changes at a home or store he would just drag the hose from his van and pump it into the tank.
Want stats on tank? check my profile.

Peppermint Shrimp:
Crush two tbs minced mint leaves (no stems) with the juice of two limes, two tbs of sugar and a shot of light rum. Marinade eight cleaned jumbo shrimp for two hours in fridge or overnight (overnight is best). Skewer and salt shrimp. Broil or grill over medium high heat until shrimp become opaque (apx. two and a half min per side). Serve with black beans cooked with garlic, green onions, bacon and topped with a slice of lime.
