    I would pull your info and send it to him as a pm. I wouldn't want a jack Wagon like me to send a bunch of stuff!

    Ya gotta start somewhere. I wish I'd have taken pics of my first reef tank, a 55 gallon with an undergravel filtre, live rock, 2 shop lights, a Niger trigger and Panther grouper.

    Is there any way to "treat" tap water, before salt..

    I was thinking drip over a layer of moss or something to "filter" and run until tds is within acceptable parameters??

    Maybe duck moss in the refugium, we used to use it in the clean up ponds at Pilot Travel Centers where all the lot and pumping drains ran to.. I was also thinking of trying a drip acclamation..

    Has anyone heard of duck weed being used in fresh, or salt??

    Trying another free idea, #cheapestreefbuild

    ReeferRob, appologies for the delay, I haven't fogotten you!!
