    yip, salt is not cheap.

    And then buying pre-mixed is not cheap either. That is why guys buy RO units and mix their own salt.

    But then again, if you got a small tank, less than 200L then its almost not worthwhile to buy the RO unit, mixing drum, RO drum and then dedicate some space for that either. But as your evaporation rate goes up, and you do bigger water changes, then yes, having your own salt mixing station becomes a very viable option.

    yup, figured as much, starting off on a 120L, so didn't see the point in setting up R.O unit etc. maybe next year once this one gets too small, only getting mid dec though. so till then I research.
