As an example, my RO was always hooked up and running, and I kept a 33 gallon pail (roughly 125 liters) full of RO. Granted, I had a 125 gallon saltwater tank, sump, refuge, etc., and had no trouble going through that amount of water on a regular basis, which more or less made the operation cost effective and did away with the various aspects of procuring such water otherwise; the only real drawback being the need to have a dedicated space and mains source of water to run the RO and store its output.



Weigh the pros and cons against you and your brothers needs, then go from there.
he has a 250ltr aquarium and he hates that distilled plastic bottles ,me too.
So i think we go that route.

idk about using it in my PC, but its sure yummy everywhere else.
I'll let you guys know when i have it,and tried it in my Loop.
But i'll guess that takes a bit of time to own this device, cause i cant find a seller in my country(yet).

is this normal for coolant to look like this after a year, using mayhems xt-1 old formula?
Also is it ok to flush with hot water, then distilled then run distilled + vinegar before final flushing with distilled, plus cleaning plate with vinegar and distilled water

do you have a less opaque object and a more steady hand?

coolant picks up stuff over a year even if the system was stupid tier cleaned first.

That's the way you should go then. Though the RO/DI water should be fine in your PC (and your brother's aquarium) if you manage it properly, you might also want to get a TDS meter of some sort to make sure that what you'll be using is being processed properly. You'll likely want to get an RO setup that includes DI filtering as well.

In any event, your brother may already have what you need to test the water you process if he's been checking the water he uses in his aquarium himself. Even the best filtration systems will need occasional testing as the filters used in them eventually will need to be changed:

It looks like copper sulfate solution from rads and block, not sure I understood your statement though

You're welcome

I've been out of the reef hobby for years, so I couldn't really give you sound recommendations about the different brands available today, especially in your part of the world. But if your brother is a member of a relatively local reef club, you or he might start by inquiring there. If you're near enough to Innsbrook, there might be a club there.

You might also try inquiring at public aquariums in Innsbruck for recommendations, perhaps check with the staff there. It looks like there might also be a an aquarium specialist shop or two in the Innsbrook area where you might try your inquiries; though I'd think other hobbyists in your area would be the best bet for recommendations.

You're also not extremely far from larger cities like München, where answers might be found easier. In any event, good luck, and let us know what you eventually come up with

oy vey.

I spent a year taking care of my dad's failed attempt at a home reef.

my take away is this - if you don't wanna setup a proper quarantine tank rotation, stick to just coral. otherwise, you'll be fighting disease forever. there's no such thing as a disease free fish from the local fish store. at least, not at the tier of local store we were shopping at.

growing coral is definitely on my list of things to do again. coral & crustaceans. I'm good on the salt fish bit, at least until I have a large enough place to setup all the extra tanks needed to keep everyone happy & healthy.

I enjoyed it myself; though like a lot of hobbies, it can be a money pit.

Crustaceans, eh? If you want to go fishless, you might try one of these. Heck, sometimes they even come free in the live rock you get:


Otoh, if you don't want to go fishless and end up with one or more of those in the live rock you get, sooner or later you might be fishless

always gotta have a clean up crew, though not one so savage that it eata EVERYTHING else in the tank


and yes, most definitely one of the more expensive "adult hobbies" though, at least in Florida, there's no shortage of used tanks on the low low.
