I'll agree and disagree. The cheap chinese dimmable LEDs that have been raved about in these forums, I want to say taotonics, are really cheap. I'd take that shot in the knee at once rather than having to do it later after buying some other unit previously. But that's me.

I already have a 2x t8 48" light unit running so dont need one yet i guess. But might change the bulb for more brighter light.
And i dont buy china stuff.

Just sorting out my RODI water reserve tank now. Its a 120 litre tank which will hold about 15% of my tank volume.
Is 15% water change weekly will be good enough?

Thatd be fine. A 10% is good enough for weekly pwc long as nitrates are kept in check.

Thats good. I'm setting this tank in my outer house. Rodi water will store in this and inside the tank i will have a 18000 litre per hour pump which will pump this water in my main tank through 30meter hose pipe.
Would it be a bad idea to mix the salt in the rodi storing tank?
My plan is to place a heater and warm the water up to 26c then add the salt and turn on the powerhead. Once its reading the same salinity level then transfer it to my main tank.

You are out of safe levels for nitrate for a FOWLR system. Your fish will be poisoned until you change it.
