I am guessing you have a smaller tank with an active substrate. Also dosing EI with gh booster will help, but I guess you will quickly deplete your active substrate. On a large tank you will have issues if you use only ro/di unless you dose gh booster and some sort of k2co3 to increase your kh (clearly this is dependent on the substrate)
