DI remove ions (dissolved) while RO removes suspend particles.
Marty I know how you feel. I found a place that sells DI water for $0.49 a gallon but if you get 5 gallons its only $1.49 so have not bought my own filter. You could always collect the runoff water from the RO and use it to water plant, laundry, etc. If you don't get the RO, you could get a two stage carbon filter 5mm and 1 mm and a DI filter. The carbon filters will remove suspend particle (only to 1 mm) and chlorine. www.airwaterice.com sell filters and parts to make your own, I'm sure there are other place you get them too.

Ditto, I got red legged hermits and some turbo snails and I don't have any noticable algae on my sand and only a little on the glass...
