Ok, now I know. Thanks! Also, so I dont need to make a new thread... is this RO/DI system good? http://www.drsfostersmith.com/Produc...&N=2004+113775 I would be getting the cheapest one. Will I need anything besides this right here?

Wait! If you haven't ordered it yet, look on ebay. We were just talking in another thread. copy and past the line below into the search box on the ebay home page. This one i much less expensive and is a six-stage as opposed to a four-stage. I have it, it's easy to hook up and it works well.

I wanted to try pasting the link to see if it works, okay, it doesn't, but it does work if you copy and past the entire link into your browsers address line.

"Hey dad, I have a hobby that really interests me is teaching me things like hard work, responsibility, and budgeting my money wisely. The wild caught livestock though need pure water conditions to be healthy and I want to provide that right away. Peers on Aquarium Advice recommended this model and it is a great savings. Can you help me out, maybe even as an early Chistmas gift?"

I have a 60 gallon reef I'm just starting to set up, and I went for 5 powerheads. I set it up so that I had two MJ1200s in the top back corners aiming towards the opposite forward bottom corners, another MJ1200 in the back right corner aiming towards the surface for oxygen transfer, and two MJ900s in the bottom back corners to break up the dead spots along the rear of my tank. I am hoping that positioning rock and corals correctly will break up the flow for corals that don't want too much current, yet still provide lots of flow for corals that do. I was going to include a picture, but will spare you my skills with MS Paint.

As for the RO/DI I was going to get one but went for bottled RO water at a local water supplier. Their water tests out great and I can have loads instantly for dirt cheap as opposed to waiting for a few weeks for a unit to arrive in the mail.

I just tried it on my dad. He just laughed and said I kicked you out 12 years ago. Get a life. Thanks for nothing Hoops

Sorry Brendon!

BinaryTerror, write it in a letter, kind of a Christmas wish letter. Make it really mushy and tell him you want it for Christmas and your birthday so that's only about $50 each present, better yet, tell him to ask another family memeber to combine gifts. Tell him that's all you want and if he gets you anything else you'll donate it to charity (just kidding, I'm just in such a silly mood at 7:30 in the morning online when my cat woke me up on my only day to sleep in! Where is that ****ed cat!)
