Rubber band will break down in sw
Better idea? It's not that big of an issue as the comparnltment is perfectly sized.
I’ve never had issues with chemicals entering the tank from rubber bands. I used them all the time to attach algea sheets to rocks. You’ll have to change them often.
Making RO/DI water. Any ideas on what to do to speed this along? At this rate, I want to buy water or I may be waiting u til next summer before I have enough water...
It should tell you gallons per hour or per day. You really cant speed it up. Just make sure the pressure going into the unit is correct.
How do you make sure the pressure is right? It's 100 per day so essentially 4 per hour.... I seem to be getting half of that
Are you on a well or city.
A water pressure gage. Amazing have them around for 10 bucks.
Salt is in! Salt is in! I made ro water all week. Finally get to add it. Rock is delayed for the holidays so now we wait. I'd really like to find some pink non-living sand in Pittsburgh.
Nice tank! Still looking for fraggles...
Haha, git a while to go there. Should have my rock on the 28th, sand the 26th. Plan is a Clown and some biro Spira within a day or 2 of the rock... Thanks for watching
You getting wet or dry rock? Be careful with ammonia with dry rock.
I'll be careful for sure. Small piece of very nice live rock and reef cleaner rock.
You should be just fine.
Nice to see you in fraggle land robin.
@Robin Haselden whats your verdict on dr. Timm’s bacteria and dry rock?
The cool thing about the reef cleaners rock is it's free of organics. No organics means you don't have to worry about any decay. If he puts a small piece of actual wet live rock with established bio filter, reef cleaner and Dr Tim's, he probably will never see a cycle as long as he only adds a very small bioload, say a pair of clowns for the first two months. The bio filter in the LR plus the Dr Tim's will be enough to skip cycle the tank, but you can easily overload it.
Was actually gonna do a single clown to keep the bioload very low. I'm very excited to see something swimming but I also want to do this proper.
