You can't use straight RO water. You'll need to remineralize it. It's too pure.
It's cheaper to use tap or part Tap/part RO if you need to lower your TDS.

This Equilibrium is what my club members use.

Wanted to update everyone. I ended up trading in the 20G Long for a 29G. I liked the way it looked better and gives me some more tank space so I don't feel like I am cramming so much in. As I said, it was for my daughter and she loves it. So far we have 7 Neon Tetras and 3 Golden Panda Mollies.

Enjoy!
