Mine is .25 per gallon. Not much of a difference but still adds up

As far as I know drinking water that is sold is only RO. The DI is considered unhealthy for human consumption.

Most drinking water round these parts of texas is from an ro/di machine. We drink that or bottled water because the faucet water sucks. It taste like crap and gives you the runs basically

I dont believe consuming deionozed water is safe for humans. Either way the ro water will work

As mentioned above it will take more diligence to do a SW tank. It is a bit more costly also. But it is well worth the effort and will give you a feeling of accomplishment. FW does too but it`s just different.

I am equally proud of my 3 FW tanks as I am my SW tank, but the SW tank gets all the attention from visitors. People seem to be more amazed that I have one nano tank than 3 FW tanks...I guess there's a mystique to the SW side.

IMO the color variety for salt water fish makes the difference. Not to mention the surprising number of corals that most people haven't seen before

I'm with molavi with the mystique of sw but I'm with you too as far as brighter more ,"neon" colors as my wife calls them, just more vivid fish and corals as well.

I will agree .
More rewarding !
Think of everything else in life , the more hard work you put in makes it that much more enjoyable .
I get bored with FW
But can honestly say between feedings , weekly water changes and countless hours sitting and staring at different things that you didn't see the day before .
This is what makes a reef worth every second and dollar worth It
