    I got my unit from Spectrapure and it came with a garden hose adapter already attached to it. It just screws on like a anything else you would attach. Why not hide it under your bathroom sink?

    She HATES my hobby and doesn't want anything to do with it, she would be so PO'd im so tired of hearing her yell at me for things I do with this hobby its ridiculous I can barley mix saltwater i my kitchen without getting yelled at for making a "mess" that I clean up??? and its not even that bad she just doesn't want anything to do with it and thinks its a big fat waste of time and money.

    I'm so sorry to hear that. My gf was that way in the beginning but now she likes it after seeing how peaceful they are and now that I'm actually selling corals to pay for everything I buy. However, I still have to go outside and use the hose to rinse anything out. If I even think about bringing something that touched my tank into the kitchen or any other sink to rinse it out I get an earful about how disgusting it is.

    Most should have some kind of attachment you could get extra if it didn't already come with one. Did you have a specific one you were looking at already?

    I feel your pain. I've been a poor college student for the past 4 years. I would give Spectrapure a look, but I'm partial to them since I got mine there. I bought mine for around $90 I think. Nothing fancy and only 60 gpd or so. They used to advertise sales on here, not sure if they still do.
