This depends on the quality of the filters. I had one that I will not name here, that didn't remove chlorimines, also keep in mind if you have a good RO unit you need to add treatments ment for RO water as its to pure for the fish to use.

I would say no since enough trace elements are usually provided in synthetic salt for FO /FOWLR.
As far as dechlorinator , I guess ok if your tap or RO water has chloramine for FO/FOWLR tank but I would not use any dechlorinator for reef set up. I rather just age the tap or RO water for reef since I very rarely done more than 5 % pwc at a time for reef. But always had reserve circulation 24/7/365.

I am sorry I don't know much about salt, I didn't even notice this was in the salt forum, I was just looking at unanswered post.
