I 100% agree

everything I type is compensation for not being able to do that.

after a few mos of test hands off, my glass starts yellowing, gha starts on the glass...eutrophication. that one from the video just doesn't head down the path, and many large tanks can pull it off as well those will always be gems in the hobby no doubt.

That is a literal and direct example of eutrophication interruption by force not by coaxing and wait. that's a huge amount of rocks.

anyone who rinses sand for eleven hours is captain morgan as far as I'm concerned. there's resolve and then there's resolve on file.

oligotrophic condition earned. taken.

there is no pill, doser or additive that can do that. it's on file I tried to give him a fluconazole out...I thought surely nobody with a reef that big is fed up. that was incorrect assumpt

after years and years of using RODI for my aquarium and hearing complaints at home that the fish have better water than what we humans drink, I’ve installed a RO drinking water system under the sink and I’ll have to say I’m quite happy with it.

those pics are scary!
ReeferBud...i have a home RO system under my sink...what are your thoughts of using that for my Tank? I am not thrilled about the thought of adding another one. Thanks.

I think it should be fine as long as you don’t have any of the cartridges that add minerals or other things back to the water. Only downside is that it would not be RODI (no de-inonization) although it would be pretty easy to buy a few small valves and tees and add the DI cartridge for when you want to make fish tank water :)
