RO System Question

I am interested in buying a RO system, but I need one that I can either hook up to a sink or into the water line going up to the faucet (I cant really hard pipe one in). Are these available? Most of the stuff i see for the systems donut tell how it is hooked up so I am not sure. I have a 55 gal salt water set up and will be upgrading to a 125 so it has to be able to meet those water needs. Thanks!

Okay I was smart enough now to look on the next page and see someone already asked this, so I have that figured out. Now how many gpd do you recommend?

As many as you can afford. I would go with a minimum of 75GPD preferrably more.

Edited; cause it's way to early to be typing

Aqua FX is the best available IMO.

i looked at the Aqua FX web page and was wondering what the major difference between the 4 and 5 stage units were and if its worth the extra money?

The only difference is the extra DI cartridge on the 5 stage unit. Either unit will give you water with a TDS of 0. If you were measuring conductivity in mega-ohms, you might see a small difference...it's not going to matter for aquarium use though. With the 5 stage unit, you can make more water before you have to change out the DI carts. The 5 stage is also available in a 200 gpd flow rating.
