    I use RO/DI units; one for freshwater, one for marine. Because my tap is unsuitable for the freshwater fish I like to keep, I mix 70 percent RO/DI with 30 percent tap for the level of pH and hardness my fish enjoy.

    Of course, I use pure RO/DI to mix with my marine salts for my marine tanks.

    It would be inaccurate to say an RO or RO/DI unit isn't needed for freshwater. You'd need pure water for evaporation top-offs, partial changes necessary to breed certain kinds of fish; all kinds of uses. Of course, you can reconstitute RO or RO/DI to drink, cook with, or use in your aquarium, and that water would lack all the minerals, metals and toxins of tap water.

    No no, i wouldnt take it that way. i actually appreciate ur help. Im confused, lol and i can't find where i read that now. Oh well I am certainly willing to own up to it when im wrong. So i guess i shouldn't get an r/o unit for my freshwater tank?

    I know plants absorb ates. So, I honestly think you should figure what is causing the ates. If you're running a UGF, don't think you are, that would be your ate problem.
