Thanks to all the help on my previous post.
My next question concerns water. I've read just about every post in this particular forum on RO
, distilled water, tap water. Again, I have a 90 gallon tank that I'm going to be using as a FOWLR
tank. I don't have access to an RO
and it's not currently in my budget and there is no local dealer I can buy RO
water from. I do go to Seattle every 2 weeks and I can get it from the Seattle Aquarium, but I don't think I'm going to bring 90 gallons of water down in my van
I know tap water isn't the way to go but I've read that some use tap water for their initial setup and then use RO
water for their water changes. So, in my setup I plan on using uncured live rock to help with the cycling process. I've read that after that is complete I should do about a 50% water change. So, here's my question.
Would it be ok to use tap water treated with Prime to do the initial fill and the 50% water change and then use water RO
water for my top-offs and 10% bi-weekly changes?
Thanks again, for any info you can provide.
