We have a massive de-mineralising unit at work - it produces 1000s Gallons per day. I work on Harrier "Jump Jets" and they need very pure water for cooling their engines whilst hovering - any minerals would cause damage. I would imagine the water it produces is purer than most shops or that can be produced by standard RO units. It is tested regularly at <3 microsiemens (very pure). I just help myself (with permission of course) to 30 litres a week for my water changes. The military has its benefits sometimes!houndour said:cute fish, makes your ram look tiny...never realised he was so small...even though he's not that much bigger than the cardinals. oh I'll shut up now. Just out of interest, do you buy your RO water? Or do you have a thingy to convert tap water?
It is a bit of a contrast - especially if you knew what area I actually work in (sorry can't really say on a public forum - I'd have to kill you ).jimbooo said:harrier jump jet engineer by day, fish tank gardner by night
Latest photo. I still can't believe I'm a Discus keeper, I haven't felt this excited since Florence (my baby daughter) was born - is that really sad?
Thanks Nix. I was very surprised at how quickly Digweed settled in. I've heard of them taking up to 6 weeks to feed and be active.Nix said:Latest photo. I still can't believe I'm a Discus keeper, I haven't felt this excited since Florence (my baby daughter) was born - is that really sad?
Bluntly put; Yes, that is very sad.
lol only kidding
Looks like digweed is settling in nicly, and very fast for a discus I might add, most probably would be squeezed in behind that Java Fern.
Speaking of which, that Java fern is getting HUGE.
