Post Water RO/DI?

Ar you freshwater guys using RO/DI? I've been in salterwater for awhile and can't remember if this is a good way to go or is it just Tap water with Prime conditioner? Let me know

I am trying to get my 10G setup for a Planted system

Thanks
Frankie

RO/DI water is stripped of all the minerals needed for a FW tank so if you use it you need to add a product like SeaChem Replenish. Tap water and prime is recommended for that reason.

You still need to use RORite or Replenish or such.

Just a different brand of the same stuff... "Kent's RO-Rite", "SeaChem Replenish", etc (I'm sure there are more that do the same thing).
