That's what I was thinking too. It costs $20 at my LFS for only 4 1/2 gallons so I have to buy 2. My tank is 30g so I usually do water changes every other week (every week since the break out) of 5 gallons of the sea water.Good idea, get a RODI and stop buying the natural sea water. Thats stuffs expensive and in the end you come out spending more then you would if you just purcahse and rodi unit
Sorry, I'm new to this and I don't know what you mean by air water and ice. Could you elaborate a little more.
See, I knew I was ignorant at this. I only set up this tank in January and it's my first SW tank. I have a FW tank that has been thriving for 10 years.air water and ice is a vendor here. they have a promo code you can use its 10% off for being a MR member plus free shipping code aswell. check out there page under market place for the details.
I don't have any corals, just live rock. I was told by the LFS that since I don't have corals I should keep the temp between 72-78. This is why I'm confused, I get different answers from the LFS everytime I go there. They are a reputable place and have been there for years so I don't know why they give me a different answer when I ask.General temperature for a reef tank is 78-79 degrees. With an all in one tank im surprised you maintain a temp of 74 degrees

They have a small unit called the mighty might right around $100. Well eventually you will get tired of always buying water for top offs and water changes.See, I knew I was ignorant at this.

Since my tank is only 30g, do you have any idea where can I get a small RO/DI system that won't break the bank. The one's that I have seen are for 50gpd and I really don't need that much since I only do 5g water changes a week or 10g every other week. I asked my LFS and they said that distilled water is just fine for my use, but then another person at the same store said that RO is better (but they don't sell it, whatever). That is why I'm so confused about the whole distilled vs. RO/DI situation.
Thanks for the info, I really appreciate it since I'm new to this hobby.
I saw that unit and I am going to purchase it.They have a small unit called the mighty might right around $100. Well eventually you will get tired of always buying water for top offs and water changes.
So the upfront cost of the unit will be so worth it in the long run!
I got the Mighty Might last night and can't wait for it to get here. The water pressure is great in my town so I don't have to worry about that. I have a 30g tank so I think the mighty might is good for my needs.look at the airwaterice units,,i have one and love it ,,also i wouldnt recomend going with a small unit ,,if u dont have proper water pressure at your house u wont produce that much water ,,,i would buy a 75gpd unit they are around the 100-140 price range,
ps. dont always belive ur lfs,,,if u have any questions just ask away here ,,,thats whats this forum is for. many many helpful people
