Thank you all for your replies. After spending most of today and yesterday reading on these forums, I think I might try to used distilled water. I have read that many people have had success with distilled water. I posted a new thread today stating that I am considering using the 34 gallon Red Sea Max 130D aquarium. Therefore, my PWC
's will not be unmanageable for me, as I will be dealing with a lot less water at one time than someone with a much larger tank. If I find that distilled water doesn't work for me, then I will consider getting a RO
filter. I could set up the RO
filter in my basement, but then it would mean carrying gallons of water up from there, and the only access to my basement is by going outside first.
