    Just read it. That's an awesome piece! I feel lucky to get this one for 40$ at cesars fish in Santa Rosa. They had a blue tip knew with like 5 mounts for 60 and a green tip. Also had a good amount of bubble corals. I think a bubble is next on my list!!

    So I'm going to take on ich unfortunately. Going to do 72 day fallow with ttm method. Lost my lawnmower blenny today not sure if it was to ich or starvation I tried feeding it Nori and he didn't take it tried algea tabs and nothing tried frozen and nothing. At least he died outside of the rocks and I don't have to worry about searching for him. Sucks but lesson learned no more lawnmower unless I plan on keeping a tank full of algae.

    On a plus side I got my ato in the mail today for when I leave to Oregon for a few days. Do any of you guys have this one[​IMG]

    Hmmm, Hydrofill. I've read reports of it failing. How soon are you leaving?

    Strongly suggest adding a second membrane inline if you have good pressure or a booster pump. Cuts waste in half and doubles the life of your prefilters.

    Yes I was researching that because I would need a booster pump since my pressure is only between 45 and 50. How is yours set up

    Same setup here. I have pretty "clean" tap water between 40-45 TDS with a pressure 70-75psi with booster and get almost 1:1 waste:RO/DI water. Get around 190G per day.
