Well i once thought this way too.this is S.FLA and our water is awful full of bleach, phosphorus, nitrates and is very hard, plain swamp water.There is a chemist who's has a suit against the county, for fish loss! I perform hi-tech water changes that require expensive additives like lots o' tests. novaqua+, phosguard, acid up/down
and carbon (to see thru your water). Now r/o clean 7.0 just add r/o right straight in the water container and tweek the ph a bit. I just need to be sure about the alk (hardness). I did an exp with both tap and r/o 1g with half the recc. amount of BWE the ph stabalized at 6.8 on tap and 6.2 on r/o, but alk 0, now 6.2 is too low right now, do you know if i could safely add more r/o right ( trace minerals ) or fresh water essentials to increase the alk ? See how great that is i run my 50 g at 6.8.
