  1. RODI recs and question

    OK, so doing a little research. Austin uses Chloramines. Looks like 6 stage is what is recommended. If I add the upgrade kit, it still come out cheaper than starting with the 6 stage unit by itself. BRS 4 stage to 6 stage upgrade kit for $84.99 BRS 75 gallon/day 6 stage RO/DI $195.49 Any thoughts? I'm needing to be a little mindful of money this close to the holidays. Cheers, Paula
  2. RODI recs and question

    So, I'm considering getting an RODI for Black Friday. Up til now, I've been buying RO from Aquatek. It's a bit of a chore and the cost adds up. I'm going through about 20-25 gallons every two weeks between water changes and kalkwasser. I was looking at this 4 stage unit which is on sale at BRS. BRS 75 gallon 4 stage RO/DI for $94.00. Would it be adequate for Austin water? Thanks in advance, Paula Also a shout out to Jen_H. I picked up a RBTA from her earlier today which is now being acclimated (1/2 hour temp float and now the slow drip!)

  5. Hanna Checkers ?

    I use the alk. Probs get the ultra low phosphorus when I have a little extra cash. (As though that's going to happen anytime soon in this hobby! I guess I should have said it's not as high a priority as some other things I need.)

    Timfish, you always give me a lot to think about. Thanks! Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  7. Algae scrubber

    I thought about trying a diy one. This is the video I watched. Very inexpensive. I'm already running chaeto in my refugium and my One Spot Foxface seems to be taking care of any extra algae in my DT so I may hold off trying. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk

    Wowza! Thanks. I look forward to looking at it. I also just ordered a copy of Aquarium Corals by Eric Borneman. Aquarium Corals : Selection, Husbandry, and Natural History https://www.amazon.com/dp/1890087475/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_R.KcAb9SN51VT Paula Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk

    The thing I find disturbing is the lack of redundancy on the Keurig. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
