But, your 'trates have to be a certain level depending on what system you are running. FO and FOWLR can be around 20ppm, but lower is better, and reef should be under 2. Some corals can take 'trates up to 5-10, but that is highly not reccomended.

yeah fresh water only for top offs. the salt stays in the system as the water evaporates
