playing with the idea of RO water
Like the title says... just a few questions that id like to ask the pros. Ive read that a lot of the "harder to grow" plants do better in softer water. That being said, i dont know a whole ton about how to use it. Ive read something about doing half tap and half RO water, but ive also read that RO water has a ph of 5-6. Obviously the co2 injection would drop it more, but thats another story.
Could i get away with using 100% RO water without having to use something to bring the hardness/ph up? Will my fish/plants be ok? It seems like a pain without an RO unit at home. I know of a few places nearby that sell or give away the stuff, but id have to find some easily carried and sealed containers for it.
I havent looked into this too far yet but Ive been playing with the idea for a while. Anyone with useful links or information?
