I just took out my to membrane. It's a aquafx 100 gpd tfc filter. I was wonder what would be a good replacement. That ro membrane is $50 thoughts.
Spectrapure 90GPD plus membrane, best on the market hands down. It's still more than $50 though..

Speaking of RO membranes, I have a 50gpd RO Buddie. It's terribly slow. Can I put a 100gpd membrane in it or would I need to upgrade the whole system?
Yes. You may have to swap the ro housing though. So if you got a whole ro membrane with the housing and just swapped it line for line itll work fine.

I'll have to double check but I believe so, most RO "Canisters" are a standard size. You would need to purchase a new flow restrictor or use a flow valve to readjust the restriction after the membrane

Agree but they have a restrictor on it. So that will need to be changed. I just set one up for my buddy. 50gpd is slow

The wife ordered some chewy toys from Chewy.com. She apparently ordered the wrong size. :p Cassie can’t really chew it, but does love carrying it around and hiding it. Maybe she will grow into it one day. Ha!

Are the venomous and what do you keep them with
Not sure if venomous or not. Lots of big teeth though lol. They are going through TTM/peroxide dips right now. Wife is in charge that this week, since I am in Boston. They will be going with the puffers when done. In the wild they share the same habitat with them. My dad has 4 in his 300 aggressive and those ones are peaceful, but can hold their own with a tusk, puffers, and tangs.
