I bought my water at Wal-mart for the longest time and that worked OK. However, life became much easier once I got my RO/DI.

Do a search for "agrocrete." It's basically a way to make porous manmade rocks with concrete. Over time, it will become "live" with bacteria. It has its pros and cons.

Update: I ordered two of the Seio 1500's. This, along with my filter return and some combination of my existing maxi-jets should provide enough flow for an sps tank.

I'd wait awhile before adding the lps's (brain, torch, bubble) and the clams or anemone. Make sure you do a lot of research before adding any anemone's - they come with their own set of problems. ...

Oh yeah, if you can use retros, you'll definately be able to save some money. I don't think you can get retro's in DE's though; but I could be wrong.

250's wouldn't quite be overkill, but with a 17" depth, you would do really well with 150's - especially DE's. Plus you'll have less heat to deal with and a lower electric bill.

Try adding Kent Nitrate Sponge to your media sleeve. It takes a couple weeks but it will lower your nitrates. I've also heard very good things about Seachem Purigen, but haven't tried it yet.
