If you mean like Kents RO Right, than yes, I use a product called Kents RO Right

I also treat it with a mix of Alkaline Buffer and Acid Buffer for my freshwater fish.

Nope, doesn't appear to be chloramines in my water after going through my RODI system.

What test kit are you using to measure chloramines? How are you arriving at zero?
Do you even have chloramines in your water supply out of the tap? Have you called your municipality?

For those interested, here is more information-

Good point, maybe my testing is flawed. Here is what I do.

When I test my unfiltered tap water with an API ammonia kit it will detect the ammonia that is in the chloramines. About .5 ppm's worth typically, sometimes a little less. The water coming through my RODI system shows none.

As stated in the second link I posted, you'll have to do a few more steps and with a more comprehensive test kit than the one you have. I would just call the water company and see what they use. You may just be seeing chlorine.
