Made a collection cup out of a fish food plastic can thing which drains into another juice bottle. xD It's a pretty ghetto looking device but I think once there's stuff in the water, it'll work pretty good.

I wouldn't put it against PP5, he would come up with a great ro/di unit.

xD If I had the right tools, I could probably build a killer unit for not a ton of money.

Well, last time i checked, apple juice bottles aren't great at holding pressure. XD

I'm pretty sure if I was really motivated to make an RO/DI I totally could. I just don't see a need at this particular time XD.

I re-set up the skimmer today, to see if it would help at all now seeing that theres "live" stuff in there. I'll leave it on over night and see what happens.



its producing some pretty good bubbles IMO.
