911, I hope this is the right place

Recommended Posts

Okay I think I can now say the dumbest thing I've ever done in this hobby is trusting the Portland water supply. I haven't gone out of my way to advertise the fact that I've been running off tap. I know how most of you feel about that. I even knew why. I still did it, mostly because of expense. With the changes portland has made to the water I need to get a filtration unit I will. In the mean time(because the filter isn't happening until after x-mass) I need to do a WC. Without a car I can't bring back 15gal a week on the bus. I did just realize though that by friday I can get a ride to the LFS and just get all I need for the month in 1 trip. Thats still friday though. Tank is starting to go south now. I need help getting water here.

Sorry to hear that, yeah the most important factor in reefing is the WATER! The first thing you should buy when starting up a reef aquarium is an RO/DI unit! I can give you some free RO/DI water but you would have to come and get it.

Found another thread where she mentioned she's off Barbur near Tigard. I'll throw 5 gals of water in my car since that's on my way to/from work.

 

Kimberlee - I just need an address from you if you still need the water - PM me

Yes just until I can get to the lfs on friday I'll pick up enough ro water at the store to make it through to Jan. at which point x-mass and B days are over for the most part and I can get my filter. I'm a block up from burlling game fredmeyers. I'll give anyone willing to drop some off a little water a pm w/ exact directions

Sponsor some one? whats that mean in fish land? Would love someone to sponsor me though will check it out

 

Check with reefboy. He said that he was willing to sponsor 2 people to go to the meeting that couldn't afford it. He won't be able to make it since he lives in Medford.

Jody was going to sponsor someone. You sound like a great candidate. Might want to look into that.

Funny you should say that Jesse. When he first offered that I was thinking her and her sister Samantha would make great candidates. They still would need a way down to Salem though and as I have sadly whined about I cannot go.

 

Very awesome of you Jackaninny to drop the water off!(clap)(clap)
