    Sanding overflow box

    you shouldnt need to sand. just use krylon fusion and apply several very light coats. don't try to paint it all in one go

    Meep's 5g with clam

    People that get offended at the word retarded are incredibly petty, you don't wanna associate yourself with them anyway. They just have to have something to get upset about.

    How slow of a stream is your RO/DI BRS producing?

    wow! you guys are lucky at my good ole 42 psi water pressure it takes me just over 2 hours to make 5g outta a 75gpd. I can start my ro in a 20g aquarium when i go to bed and when i get up 9 hours later it isnt full yet

    I have 2 rows of 14 on my 40b, spaced exactly 6 inches apart. Works pretty good, Coverage is almost perfect @ 11" off the water

    These chinese leds look good?

    Also, you will want more blue than that... 2b:5w isn't gonna look too good, what is the spectrum of the whites? Additionally straight red makes a fixture look like crap because it is really overpowering. You need like a deep red to not wash out your other colors.

    I believe the 120 cant be fully disassembled the way the others can be, which proves problematic

    Water chemistry confusion

    I disagree. The API kit will easily tell you if you have detectable phosphate or not, and IMO that's all you really need to kno. If you can detect any phosphate on an API kit you have too much. Plain and simple. OP I can tell you already you need new DI resin if phosphate is getting through. PO4 is pretty weakly ionized and is the first thing to break through when your DI is exhausted. Also if the integrity of your RODI is in question you REALLY need a TDS meter. If your water is higher than 1-2(or even arguably 0) ppm it is too high. Also, you cannot accurately test Phosphate in RODI or "ultra pure" water, as it tends to cause a false positive, which is another reason you need a TDS meter. Finally, successful reef keeping starts with good source water. Not running phosban later on to combat an issue you could have controlled in the first place. HTH
