JJenna Posted November 6, 2022 Share Posted November 6, 2022 I'm coming down to the day when I actually start planting my tank, placed my order for different kinds of plants to see which I like better with my dragon stone decor. While I have an RO system at home, I'm going to jump start the process by going to lfs and getting 20 gal of RO (?DI). Do I need to remineralize each type of water and if so, recommendations? What does the removal of dissolved solids do for my fish/plants? Is there a significant difference between RO and RODI? Do I also need to treat for chloramines? I'm leaning towards no because we have a 125 gal tank for a 6" RES that also has ~20 fish (danios/barbs) and I can't even count the number of shrimps who have survived in the year since we upgraded to a 125. I appreciate your advice! I always have in the back of my mind that I have to be more careful in this 40 gallon breeder tank because the turtle is more forgiving about tank parameters.
