Brick Brothers Is Back

Hey guys, how everybody been? As some of yall may know I broke down my 300g 18mo ago due to me buying my first home in the poconos. Now that I'm all settle in, I've been preparing to setup my tank. Goal is to have it up and running by June. Heres a few pix of what I've been up too.

Good luck finding a good LFS up here lol been here almost 3 years and there’s nothing. And if you are on a well you can’t just make water the way you used to.

Thanks for the heads up. I do have well water. A RO filter is not good enough?

Blast from the past! Welcome back.

You still have those beautiful puppies?

Is that the same exit for the outlets and water parks?

Congrats!!

No. Since the PH in well water is SOOO low you need to feed the sediment filter, the carbon and the membrane first. Let it fill a container, bubble it for 48hrs then either use a pump or gravity feed the DI then into another container. I also add a tablespoon of Kalk to the first container before it goes into the DI but you need to add another sediment filterand feed the water into that first. If you try and just use your RO/DI you will exhaust the DI after about 100 gallons
