+1 Zeeter!!! Thank You!!!zeeter said:There's more of a need in Saltwater for RO/DI than in FW. As long as you condition for chlorine in Freshwater you're probably fine. But in Saltwater the fish are much, much more sensitive to the many different chemicals in the water. Plus the phosphate seeps into the live rock and causes huge algae problems and coral growth stunting. Even if you switch over to RO/DI after a few months the rocks will continue to leach out the phosphate for many months after that. For me it's been nine months since I switched over and I still get phosphate buildups to the point where I had to run a phosban reactor.
IMO the Bio cube cost more then it really is worth if you want to spend that much you can get a standard tank that is bigger and do as much DIY to the tank as possible and you will spend less. If you decide on cube I would suggest that you get HQI lighting for corals and you will be much happier in the end!!!Jaime said:hahaha! I went to the LFS and I may just get a 29gal Bio cube. Would this be a good starter tank?
Thanks Harpua!!! I bet you had fun standing in line!!! NOT!!!!harpua2002 said:From TX to GA, you could probably UPS Ground it for less than $20 (depends a ton on size and weight). It'll probably be cheaper than USPS. My holiday job this year was the UPS store. LOL!
