What to add to R.O water?

I have just purchase a R.O unit which I will be using for freshwater fish. My reason for doing this is because of losing a whole tank of plecs due to chemicals being added to my water supply by the water company.

I have the R.O unit all working but would like to know what people use to make the water safe for fish. Adding tap water is not an option because of the reason mentioned.

I have been told by my LFS that kent R-right is probally not the best thing for freshwater fish (he said it was more for marines) and have been given some Kent Black water expert. Has anyone used this and if so what are your thoughts..also any other products you recommend?
