    most garden centers have a tropical/marine fish shop they will give you advice on the best salt , they are a little more expensive but get a Refractometer to test your salt more accurate than the swing arm type

    As you are across the water from us, I would say drfostersmith.com is as good as any to order from, unless you have any good marine fish outlets near to you....as for salt I use Red sea coral pro, but everyone to there own.

    By saying regular water I take it you mean fresh water in that case no it has to be salt water otherwise you will kill the organisms in the rock if you ever have to use fresh water to say top your tank up or make up some salt water use ro water never tap water other wise you will have no end of problems

    Re: 125 gallon aggressive fish only setup. Need advice.

    Hi sorry I ran Into some car trouble set me back on my tank plans but I think I'm ready to get back on it. I need some advice on a whirlpool RO system. Someone is selling one for $35 and I was just wondering if it's actually something I should pick up for my tank? How important is it to use RO water? My last setup I just used the regular horrible las vegas tap water. I will post a pic of the system she is selling. Thank you!

    If this is in good working order, i would get it as looks to be a very good price ....and if your tap water is as bad as ours you will need it for marine setups if you are going to keep corals.

    I agree with gary it would save you plenty of $$ I really should get one but I only do small water changes so at the mo at least it is not worth it for me

    Thanks for the advice I got it. Lol now I need to figure out how to hook it up in my washing room. I have never tried plumbing but I'm going to watch some videos. Thanks again.
