  1. If you just did a water change and parameters seemed in line for alk, calc...etc then i would be your source water has changed and RODI is not getting everything out. Bummer to see, been there done that......hate to say. Its been a few weeks, hows it looking?
  2. Thanks for the info, its appreciated!
  3. Thanks Amanda, do you notice water pressure drop when it starts to get dirty, are you just running 1? How long do your filters normally last?
  4. So i'm in the planning stages of tank build at the new house but first want to address our crappy water. Brownsburg water in our hood is really tan/orange and high in iron and manganese. I have never experienced such bad water so curious if anyone has added a whole house filter system? The plan is to add the house filter, then connect to water softener, then have the RODI after the softner. This will be the most filtration i think i've ever had since being in the hobby! Any opinions would be great. Thanks, Luke
  5. The one thing that scares me is I saw you were looking for dry rock. Some of the dry rock out there takes 4-6mths to really cure, how much are you planning on adding? I would just add fully cured myself to be on the safe side. Your current rock can handle your bioload so it should be plenty to start.
  6. Do you have a sump or is it aio tank? A 20g should be quick and easy, no need to hire it out.
  7. When I have upgraded tank's I ran them both at the same time and did water transfers a few times between the two. I think if you take your time and move a little at a time you'll be just fine. As far as moving the sand, personally I would not. I would try to disturb the sand as little as possible. But i never use sand in the first place : ) Just reminds me of a septic tank in your aquarium.
  8. I renew every year to support the club. Even though I haven’t had a tank set up for a year now I’ll always support the club.
  9. Hi everyone, hope the reefing has been well these days, I miss it! I just wanted to recognise the fact you all have Sanjay speaking at the swap this year. For anyone that doesn't know this, he is like the Bill Gates of lighting in the reefing world. I will 100% be at this event and everyone should attend this. I just wanted to tell indmas staff that they did an excellent job! I'm pumped! Thanks, Luke
  10. Anyone have any insight to Brownsburg water quality as far as tds, chlorine, metals...etc?
  11. I will miss the lake for sure. It is going to be a tough move!
  12. Thanks Bud, it may be a while this time. I am going to keep the tank which will make the next build easier.
  13. Thanks Kent, that is a worry so hopefully we can stay on the outskirts, not sure if that will help. The west side is the alternative but Rockville road sucks!
