I am looking at getting an RO system for my shrimp tanks. 

There are so many, I have no idea where to start. I want one that's reliable, has decently cheap replacement filters and will produce 0ppm for a while before replacements. 

I don't require a high GPD, 50 would be more than enough. 

So far, im thinking bulkreefsupplys seems to be good, and I also found a company in Ontario called max water that seems to have good reviews also.

Anyone have any suggestions? Please add how many gallons I can expect to get of 0ppm water before needing replacements.

I have Hamilton tap water, so my TDS is very high!

Thanks!

I can vouch for MOPS as a good place to buy one at a reasonable price.

I'd get as high a gpd one as you can. The membranes last longer. I use to fry membranes in like 2 weeks with a 100gpd unit. Was also running around 50 gallons a day through it of very hard water

I decided to go with a used Spectrapure 90GPD 5 stage max 2:1 ratio unit. Picking it up on Saturday, based on reviews online, it seems to be the way to go.
