    Hi guys

    I have just purchased a large tank this is my first tank of this size. I will need 600l of water to fill it. How do I go about this?

    Thanks

    Get yourself an RO unit, a 100GPD unit will fill your tank in a few days, buy salt and mix. Alternatively, find out from the local sponsors in your area if they sell RO water or premixed salt water and drive it to your house, bit by bit. Perhaps they have the facilities to deliver and offer this as a service?
    In all Honesty, an RO unit is your best option. On a 600L system, it is a prerequisite IMHO.

    Is the tank a new build or is it a current running tank?

    An RO unit will set you back a grand or two. Battling algae and phosphates and tank crashes will set you back by about as much, in my experience. (Yes, I speak from painful experience!!)
