    Thanks Crispin,
    Most kind of you.

    I'll take you up on your offer. Will you have enough though ?
    I need approx 70 liters. (60 liters for the nano start and 10 liters for first water change in 4 weeks time). I'll be happy with any amount of RO at the moment though.

    My RO unit is being repaired and will only be back in 4 weeks time, so I need some extra water for the first water change , if this is neccesary.

    I'll pop by tomorrow afternoon if that's OK with you
    Oh, by the way : Whereabouts in Fourways are you ?

    Ok. No problem Crispin.

    Thanks in advance for your help.
    I'll post pictures of the new nano setup on Sunday, and then the waiting game starts for me in terms of cycling.

    Rory,

    Thanks for the offer. It just really frustrating at present for me, since I had everything lined up so nicely to start up my nano over the weekend, was already day-dreaming about my reef , what corals , what fish ......
    and then the RO unit membrane ruptured !
    :angry:
    Hence my request for RO water.



    I'll keep your offer in mind though:thumbup:
