OK, I think my last question was a bust because I worded it wrong, so I am attempting again. I use RO water, and I was wondering what other dose into their water, be it RO or Tap water, in order to get the needed trace elements. I am currently mixing tap water in, but I still believe I am not getting a certain element. Is there are all in one formula? I have heard of Kent RO ready, and Fresh Water essentials. Anyone know of these, or have any experience?

Any help would be great. Thank you.

Matt,

I dose seachem flourish...it is a great trace element mix...I also dose seachem Iron for iron needs. I add this to the tank not the makeup water although you could do the same.
