    So let me get this correct. The waste from 1st membrane then I assume I would use a quick connect Y fitting and then into the DI? Where would the pump go?

    Booster is before everything, after your water input, best to use a filter to keep it from getting plugged up. My pump is after my sediment filter. You can combine the output of both membranes into 1 di or add a second and run each into their own. That's what I do.

    Thanks for the help!! On a different subject started to fill the redsea 250[​IMG]
    I know the location is not ideal but I put 1 inch Styrofoam on the back and I have thick shades for the light coming through the window I will also build a suspended hood

    So here is what I belive to be the final scape[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    The front I will have zoas and palys that I will frag some from my lagoon.

    Also I plan to see how long I can stand the sound of the stock skimmer after it breaks in. If not I'm thinking of the tunze 9004 unless someone has something else in mind. I know it might be a little under power but I don't know what else will fit.

    I am going to get 2 new return pumps since one doesn't work and the other is loud.

    For in tank flow I'm thinking a gyre or 2 jebao pp series. I don't know a whole lot about this tank but I need to do more research right now I'm just cycling and trying to get rid of the phosphate that will leach.

    Plans for equipment
    Gyre or 2 jebao pp
    Light 1 ai hydra or 2 ocean revive
    Brs media reactor
    Media rack or some way to use a filter sock

    I also have a question. Do I need a light for a fuge? Does a fuge need to have macro algea or will copepods live and breed with just rock rubble. I ask because I made a basket in the back to hold rock or possible cheato but I would need a submersible light for it. What are your thoughts

    Nothing says you HAVE to have a light for your fuge. You're going to have a hard time growing chaeto with out it though. The pods will propagate in rubble though if that's what your trying to achieve.

    The snapshots you took are from two different products, but the photo you took of the bottle is the larger LPS bottle. The concentrate is supposed to be more beneficial for SPS.

    Been over a month since an update. Added a gladiator clown, my friend gave me a flame angel. I bought a dosing pump and started dosing brs 2 part. Tank is doing well just need to check magnesium. Here are some shots[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Let me know your thoughts.

    I've acquired lights, skimmer, hob overflow for the red sea. I just need a sump now. That tank will be up soon. It's fully cycled

    So there has been a change of plans I will no longer be keeping the red sea or the lagoon they will be both for sale. I Love the lagoon but realize 2 tanks is too much work. I will be starting a new build very soon.
