So started with freshwater and still have two planted tanks. Never used RODI until I started reef tank. Been using RO for my planted and seeing a big difference in color and clarity (and that was only difference). Plus I feel much more in control of my FW tank chemistry and can hit my pH and KH/GH targets much easier (considering with tap water it was impossible to manage at all). I don't use RODI because 12ppm out of RO is just fine.

Just another view point.

I have a 75g and I have a crystal water account and I order 6 - 5 gallon bottles of purified water every two weeks for a 30% water change for $48 a month. Works for me

Nice, I'm going to follow you so I can help you with all the headaches your going to encounter. good in = good out
Actually I do have a giant problem right now. I’m trying to grow algae for my snails to eat but I just can’t manage it. I’m running lights for 14 hours a day. How can I grow more algae my dude? Where can I purchase these uglies?

If you’re that dedicated you can read through my build post and offer some advice. Or you can just be an uppity *******. Whatever works.
Looks like you just got the pretty green algae and not the uglies yet. I'll give you some early advice, when you have your cyano breakout. Switch to RODI

Your doing just the right thing.
Just be more patient, soon, your going to have all the algae your looking for.

So what do you think about running carbon as a filter for your aquariums?
