Maybe I used wrong forum for this question but it looked like the best place. My 220 was always a FOWLER and I always just used conditioned tap water and never had any problems. Now I am converting it to reef (hopefully). My question is: I know nothing about RO
water and the units used to make it. If you guys could tell me WHY I would need to use it, how to make it, and what are the advantages & disadvantages, I appreciate it. Is it a NECESSITY for reef?
My tank has following equipment & livestock: Remora Pro Urchin skimmer, Aquariapure Denitrator, DIY Turf Algae Filter, 55 gal
AGA sump, divided into fuge with live rock, cheato, etc., 300 watts metal halide and 250 watts T-5, acitinic and daylight, wavemaker system (closed loop). I have 11 fish: 3 clowns, 3 gobies, small naso tang, firefish, yellowtail damsel, 1 green Chromis, Bi-Pseudo, Mexican Turbo Snails, Coral Banded Shrimp, Long spined Urchin & Hermit Crab.
