Just out of interest what do people do with the "waste" water from the ro process? I presume its safe to use on the garden and on fruit and veg? if there a lot of waste im not keen to see it just go down the drain unless its no use elsewhere. thanks
I'm planning on installing a compact 3 stage RO unit due to the water parameters my tropical fish will need. I have seen various comments about installing vertically and horizontally but I wondered which way fishkeepers with these units recommend. Have uploaded a pic to show the unit I have.
Does anyone gave any recommendations for the best water testing kit for a tropical tank?
The API Freshwater Master Test Kit sounds like a good one - but us it adequate? The last comment in the review I read said: “this kit is usually enough to monitor and maintain a simple tank” which actually makes me wonder if I need something more comprehensive!
I’m guessing you’ll be able to tell me this too Fishlady - sorry to bug you but it’s easier than consulting my books! I know I’ll slso need to add “stuff” ie minerals etc to the ro water but for tetras what should I be looking for and are they readily available online?
The tetras I’m looking at need soft water with a ph of 6-7.
Once they’ve settled in I’m thinking of adding a small pleco/suckermouth if I have room and the one I’m looking at also needs soft water and a ph of 6-7.
