Agreed.... Whether reef or fowlr
, you should be using purified RODI
water, not treated tap. RODI
has everything removed, no treating required, and the salt mix reintroduces all of the necessary buffers, elements, & nutrients. Tap water contains way too much junk.... may not be immediately detrimental to your system, but the contaminants can slowly accumulate to cause some serious problems later down the road.
If you are
using tap, then yes, I would treat it, then add your salt & let mix overnight.
