R/O systems should eliminate ammonia. R/O systems do need to be maintained, to keep them doing what they are supposed to do. I looked into this idea, but they are expensive (the good ones) and I chose to buy bottled water to do water changes. If your tank is really big, this could be a drag and be expensive. Where I live, the Glacier Water machines (near grocery stores) is only $1.25 for 5 gallons, and it has very low ph, which is what I'm needing for my 30 gallon tank. Some things to consider. With the plants I have, I just began getting readings of 0 nitrates after close to a week, so I'm doing small (5 gallon) water changes every 7 days, and that is only $1.25 a week.
