Well, I have committed the ultimate sin... I had to use tap water to fill the tank (aprox 40 gallons). My RO/DI unit is still at the old house waiting to get moved. I did however set up my sump, skimmer, and phosban reactor. No algae so far and fish and inverts are good. Think I got lucky or am I doomed?

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

Yep. Water is good, system is strong, all fish seem happy. Lion, fox face, clowns, yellow watchman, star fish, and urchin all scooting along and marry. Trates where up a bit, but have leveled out. Just miss the guys I lost. My tangs, my hawk, triggers, and anthias.... Pretty rough.

I'm also glad to hear the tank has stabilized. Hopefully the bad luck has passed and all is gonna go well.

Have fun picking out your new fishies!
