Back in October I started thinking about setting up my first saltwater. Since than some of my original plans have changed. I am now planning on converting my 50 gallon freshwater to a saltwater tank. I will be going sumpless on this and will start it off as a fowlr and after gaining some experience I may make it a reef setup . What I was wondering is if anyone has had any experience with the bubble magus NAC5e skimmer? I have someone local who has offered to sell me one for a $100. From what I have found online about the skimmer it does seem to be a good skimmer. The other option I was looking at is the coralife super skimmer. This is being done on a budget of about $900 in which I will need to get a stand for the tank, the one I have right now is metal not good for a salt setup. I am also planning on investing in an ro unit. Another question is with ro units I am looking for one that is portable since I live in an apartment which means doing anything with the plumbing is out of the question. I am looking at a unit sold on ebay made by Titan Water sold for around $75 if I remember right off the top of my head. Any opinions on the company or unit? Or any others that I should check out that are reasonably priced? Thanks for your help, now just to wait for that refund money to come in so I can get started on my build.
