on a side note, i've been battling a vibrating RO/DI for some time. its a BRS 75gpd 4 stage value unit. It worked well for a bout 6 months then started making a hum/vibration for a second or two every half hour or so. Now when my cans full and the float valve lifts, the unit will stop making rodi water but water continues to come out of the waste line and it vibrates horribly. I replaced the check valve, tried differnet pressures. One thing i noticed is it keeps getting air in the DI cartidge. I found a minor leek on one of the connection and fixed it but still getting air inside. Lately i been noticing a air hissing noise from the flush valve, when i play handle the valve without turning the lever, the noise changes like it has an external leak. So i tokk it off, witht he valve closed I can still blow through it? And then i tried putting th ehole vlave under water, lifted the float and the unti shut off like it was supposed to without humming

swung by aquaworld. They have a fist size rock i like covered in Zoas and what looked like a brain coral. It was the only coral covered rock they had. Then they also had a variety of what looked like dollar bill sized tonga shelf frags with a good number of mushrooms on them. I'm as much interested in the microfauna hitchikers as I am the low light coral so I'm leaning towards the more expensive rock.
