Any advice? I need to do this but just have not made the time.
This is definitely my first time setting up one, but it didn’t take that long (so far) to be honest. I just looked at where the saltwater barrel was in my basement. Where the tank was? And then figured out how much RO tubing I needed, where I wanted to put the dos (I put mine in almost the middle between my tank and saltwater barrel). I also bought a random pack of RO fittings on Amazon. Then I ordered everything else on BRS and saltwateraquarium.com.

I did use about 6 inches of the original Neptune tubing connected that to the dos and then connected the RO tubing to that using a RO push connect connector.

I am not finished with this yet, but hopefully by this weekend!

So I FINALLY, got the AWC set up and running. I programmed the DOs to do 3 gallons per day equally 18 gallons a week. I set It up to only run between the hours of 1-7am.

I also was told to get some John guest fittings to connect to the DOS instead of the generic gray screw caps.


That’s all for now!

I will be adding my first fish within the next 10 days, they’re almost out of QT!

Its been a while since I updated my thread, but I recently moved my one clown and the one spot fox face in the tank from quarantine. They're doing awesome and loving all the room.

I also bought a small CUC in early December which are in QT right now.

This week I bought a Two spot Bristletooth tang and a bonded pair of Banghai Cardinalfish (Captive Bred) from divers den which came in yesterday. Those are also in QT (different from the CUC QT tank)

Once I get some pictures taken, I will post.
