Here we go, went out tonight to get a few more things. Unfortunately after contacting some suppliers, I'm going to really be restricted as to what to get and from where I can get it. I called the only other good store in our area(which is 3 hours away), and they didnt have what i wanted.
So for the sump, I have to get it here locally, tho we did do measurements and the octopus skimmer I'm going to be ordering online, will fit in the sump. I will also have to order the lights, because to get them here at the local Aqua shop, you are looking at nearly a thousand dollars for a T5, 6 bulb set up
So...I ordered the sump, heater, and refratometer(spelling?). I bought the pump, salt and thermometer in store. So all that stuff should be arriving at the same time as the tank and stand(woot!).
Im not sure what Im going to do for the RODI system. It was sooooo expensive in store. I nearly chocked when I saw what it was here. I didn't buy it and wondering if there is a way around it? It's just to expensive. I could get one online for a much better price but now not sure as to how I'm going to set it up on my own if I do, and I dont know how I would check as to how compatible it would be with the rest of my equipment.
My other issue was the pump. Because of weight with shipping, it's going to also cut back on what I am going to be able to order. This pump below was also ridiculously expensive AND the only review I found on there was a 3/5 star rating with a noise related comment. I could still return it at this point, but I dont know what I can find a replacement for it without losing an arm in shipping. All thoughts welcome. I guess this hobby kind of sucks when you're Canadian!
