No, but you may have algae issues depending on your tap water.

I started my tank with tap water and am having ro/di water issues now - I wouldn't skimp on a RO/DI unit. It'll save you tons of aggrevation. I've put thousands into my system and it looks awful...just over-run with green and hair algae.

Clean water is inexpensive and makes a huge difference (of course, depending on your tap water quality), especially with a small tank. The filters will last a long time.

PO4 stinks!
