    Yeah, I rather just use RODI.

    I trust my TDS meter.

    What are the dimensions of the caves you are using? They like small caves. What is your water parameters now?

    Grant,

    Dimensions are around 1.25" W and H. They are range from 4-6" deep.

    Water parameters are not ideal.

    Temp: 82 degrees
    Nitrates: > 10pmm
    pH: 8.0
    DTS: 380

    I still haven't gotten around to lowing the DTS. I have a RODI unit but it's at my other house with the SW reef tank. I might just fork out the money and get another one for this house b/c I know the DTS needs to go down.....a lot.

    Can you provide details to your tank? What do you feed yours? How many do you have?
    I ate my fish that died.

    Here are some updated pictures.

    And yes, I have included a FTS b/c I know trolls on here are always asking for FTS.

    I've also notice a lot of changes in their behavior. They have been in the new tank for about 6 months now. I added rocks maybe 3 months ago.

    Most of them are not in the caves anymore. Only 4 seem to like to stay in the cases. All the rest just like to lay under the rocks or between the cases.

    Also, I can see little to no aggression during the day. I really don't know how they behave at night.

    Either way, they have been eating like monsters. I feed once before I go to bed Sun-Th and they eat everything by morning. They do not get fed Fri and Sat.

    Nice tank.

    My tank is a 40g breeder. I have 8 adults in a group and five in another. I feed them earthworm sticks, spirulina sticks, nls, kens growth pellets, frozen blood worm, frozen daphnia.
