Well, I got what I wanted for Christmas! Got my:

Amazon.com: Coralife 05692 Pure-Flo II 50-Gallon Per Day 4 Stage RO/DI System: Pet Supplies :-p

Whats a good cheap water testing kit to make sure this thing is working right? I already hooked it up and ran 20 gallons out and discarded it as the instructions said. OH and I also got a box of Salt!!

Plus I also got a JOB! It's a part time Job, but now I can keep my tank on track not have to worry about giving up on my dream of getting this tank started and all my bigger fish into it so they can grow and thrive!

Congrats on the job To test RO water all you need is a inline TDS meter it will let you know when the filters need changing.

How does a inline TDS meter work?

Does it have to be inline? I can get a TDS meter for cheap and just check a cup of water from time to time. Does it need to be inline?

Any TDS meter will do as long as you keep up with your testing baron. It is important to keep the number LOW from your ro/di. An inline is handy, but if it is cheap and works I wouldn't think twice about it.

LOL. Being i just got it I am going to trust that its working for a few weeks. I don't have the money right now for even a Cheap one. LOL

Just starting my new Job and the first pay check always takes 2 to 3 weeks. Now I hope that once my Masters is finished I can hang up the Fast Food work for good. I thought that with my BS degree, but it turns out it is a BS degree as it got me nothing so far. LOL

Same advice I gave my son. Find something no one else is doing and do it. Just make it something you love.
