I use an RO filter and I have found it to be MUCH more convient to simply keep a large rubbermaid container full of RO water that I can simply draw from anytime I need to do a water change or top off. Whenever the level in the container gets low, I turn the filter on for a few hours and let it fill back up.

Boy, all the things that I could have for my fish, if I only had more room (and a lot more money). Here I go dreaming again!

I use distilled water from the market or Walmart. It' s about 58 cents a gallon...works pretty well, I've tested for PO4 and silicates and they are zero.

I am getting really sick of going to the store all the time and loading up a cart of distilled water gallons and lugging them around and upstairs to my apartment though

Im planning on getting an ro/di ASAP!
