 Now  there  are  74  views  and  no  reply  for  you  on  this  post.  The  very  title  of  your  post  is  inviting  many  IAHians  to  visit  your  post  may  be  thinking  of  a  nice  FTS  of  your  Marine  tank  but  once  visited  there  are  questions  that  many  cannot  answer  apart  from  experts  !!!!!
 
 I  am  no  expert  and  visited  your  profile  once  for  the  snaps  but  since  you  have  very  specific  questions  why  dont  you  read  the  the  two  sticky  posts  by  Fellow  experienced  IAHians  and  post  some  PM  to  them?
 
 Just  a  thought.

 Go  through  this  thread  http://reefcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1031074
 
 Yes  you  will  need  to  use  RO  water.  I  am  not  familiar  with  the  RO  units  available  on  the  market  today,  but  Im  sure  there  are  many  options.  Alternately  you  could  test  your  tap  water  for  chlorine,  phosphates  etc  and  see  if  its  ok  as  is.  It  most  likely  wont  be.
 
 I  hope  you  have  planned  to  have  a  sump  with  a  skimmer.  A  simple  canister  filter  will  not  suffice.
 Fish  are  not  as  sensitive  to  temperature  as  inverts  so  you  maybe  able  to  get  away  without  a  chiller.  But  if  you  plan  on  keeping  anemones  and  other  inverts  you  will  need  a  chiller  to  keep  a  constant  26  deg  c.  
 
 If  the  power  goes  off  and  all  you  have  is  the  invertor,  then  at  minimum  keep  the  return  pump  on  for  circulation  and  oxygenation.  If  your  chiller  switches  off  and  the  temp  increases,  the  waters  capacity  to  retain  oxygen  decreases.  If  you  are  keeping  corals  and  such,  air  condition  the  room  or  definitely  get  a  chiller.

 Hi  Sandy,
                      Change  your  title  to  help,  would  probably  fetch  you  better  results.  There  are  various  threads  in  the  forum,  which  will  help  you  gather  more  knowledge  on  the  pristine  quality  of  water  required  for  marine  aquariums.  Its  better  to  a  have  sump,  then  a  canister  for  marine  aquarium.  It  serves  has  a  multiutility  from  housing  your  skimmer,  return  pump,  a  refugim,  UV  filter  and  if  you  plan  to  have  a  phosphate  and  calcium  reactor  in  the  near  future.  IAH  threads  helped  me  a  lot  in  the  initial  days  of  planning.  Thumb Up
