    Cliff, the 2 aquariums that has had RO are mine. I was only responding to your remark regarding cycling and the use of a bacterial supplement like AquaBella, which has been of tremendous help establishing and maintaining my aquariums. I have only good things to say about my setup.

    My uncle had decided to use tap water, quick start supplement and use Prime to "detoxify" nitrogen forms. 2 mo into it, he stopped Prime, added the same bacterial supplement i've used. Since then (3 weeks ago), the ammonium went from 4ppm down to 1ppm. Nitrites have been constant at 0, and Nitrates has gone up from 20ppm to 40ppm. GH has always been 100~120 and KH 0.

    Low Ph affecting bacterial colonies is a myth. Bacteria can adapt and function with a PH as low as 4.5.
