Reverse osmosis only water for FOWLR

Is RO/DI water necessary for fowlr or can I just use regular reverse osmosis drinking water?

I think for FOWLR, RO is fine. Reefs need the DI.

I agree. I've never used RODI for FOWLR and have never had problems.

Just grows algae faster. You either remove the tap water DOCs with the RO/DI filter or algae will.
