I do have a 40 gallon refuge but it`s easier as Captain said to just pour it in the top. Hasnt bothered any fish or corals yet.

The only problem with a saltwater fish in freshwater is it changes the rates of fluid transfer across their skin. Effectively your clownfish is slightly more likely to retain water in his body while he's swimming through the new RO water. For the amount of time it remains unmixed, neither you nor the fish will notice any difference.

Pouring salt in a freshwater tank may have slightly different results, but still probably minimal.
