I have been reading about the R/O units and it was never budgeted for when I started putting my supplies list together. I am almost there with everything I need to get started, but now my concern is that I will get alot of unwanted algae without starting with R/O water. I am however buying a tap water filter from the LFS
which was recommended to keep initial costs down. Am I fine using this device to start my tank with? Will it do the trick until I get an R/O unit? My X-mas list is getting fairly large now... Good thing I have a big family who likes giving!!!!
