I've managed to get by with a mighty mite system for a while. It connected to the sink, lived on the counter in the bathroom, sat on the toilet, and would fill a 7gal jug in the shower. Well as my reefign needs grew it was there almost all the time, much to the chagrin of my SO.

Anyways, I finally tossed down some coin for a serious system that will meet my needs from here to the forseeable future.

I started with an eskimo system from airwaterice, and added two 55 gallon holding tanks. I can fill just one or both, and it's regulated with a float valve. For now I'm just using one since my ro consupmtion doesn't necessitate having 100g on hand.

Yeah, my mightymite was awesome. Did the trick for my 30g and 10g. I just decided to upgrade systems before I move onto some bigger setups.
