I only went to m&f reefs once and their selection wasn't great either...... There used to be another store 'Trinity Reefs' on Main Street but they were recently bought out by aquatic Imports and they turned it into a freshwater Only Store

Little snag. Going to have to figure this out. Made 20 gallons of water to soak my live rock using a brand new RODI and my sediment filter is orange along with 1 stage of my DI is turning brown already. Well water is not a ideal water source for us reefers ������. Might need to install a calcite neutrilizing filter to help raise the ph. Have to do some reading up on it

Def not a option for me to do. I do 30 gallons a week in water changes and my initial startup is going to be about 280 gallons of water
