The Saltwater Aquarium (The RODI and Saltwater Mixing Station)

So while I was sitting waiting for my tank to cycle I kept reading about RODI systems and how they help from adding elements to the water that I may not want building up over time. I was also getting kinda sick of mixing in water conditioner and hoping for the best . I was looking at the space required and the cost of setting up such a system and was not really digging it. However i happen across a great deal on a mixing station and RODI system. It is fairly compact and works great. It saves me so much time vs mixing out 5 galons at a time. or even the 20 gallon totes.

The Saltwater Aquarium (Introduction Thread)

So a long time ago my wife had purchased the wrong substrate for her fish tank. It turned out to be live sand for saltwater aquariums. I said put it aside maybe I will some day have my own fish tank and that will help. Well years and years went by and sombody had mentioned the tank size for our Boa seemed small. So we looked at upgrading his tank to a larger size. Once we did that we suddenly had a 55 gallon tank laying around and suddenly this bag of sand turned up again. So with a little arm twisting i started looking into it.
