Very nice! Do you plan to sell these anytime soon, either finished 3-D prints or the STL print file?

Added a couple short street ells to the return output so zI could reduce the amount of water that flows back into the tank and still keep the turbulent flow nozzle low enough that they did not suck air in. Printed a new anti siphon fitting for the new water level.

I thought I had more pictures of my RODI system here.

High-Low Tank controller with a delay relay added to send the first few minute of RO water to the drain.

DI set up and de-gassing chamber

The water flows from the degassing chamber into this jug then there is a high-low tank controller that pums the water thru the DI using Tunze ATO pump. I need to clean this up still in prototype stage.

Riptide Aquaculture had a live sale a couple weeks ago and I purchased some to try.
Very nice. I found they like medium light and being fed. In my first reef tank I had three colonies grow from 3-4 heads to 20+ head colonies before my own mistake wiped them out.

Frags still look good but I can not get any nitrate in the tank. I have been feeding a few pellets each day but nothing yet but thanks to the Chemistry forum here I have sodium nitrate on it way and will start dosing that tonight. Starting with a very weak solution. If i need to start dosing the display tank I will make a stronger solution. Made a impulse purchase during an online auction last week one torch coral then fell asleep and didn't purchase anymore so had to pay shipping for one coral.

Heater failed was seven months old but had only been in the tank since October. That is why I have a secondary heat system and it worked just like it should have just did not think I would need it this soon. My nitrates are starting to come up in the frag tank. I will continue to dose until they are up to about 5 ppm
