suplementing R/O water??

Hey Everyone,

Got a question here. How do Ya'll replenish the minerals in your R/o water? And also what do Ya'll use?? All I can get around here is R/O Right. I have added Bakeing soda before, but it seems to only help for a short time. I know Dr. FosterSmith catalog says that the SEACHEM is the best for planted tanks, but I can't find it around here.

Thanks for ANY HELP Ya'll can provide!,

I order Seachem Equilibrium and dose that to increase GH.

I also add baking soda to increase KH.

I used to use RO Right but have found that Equilibrium seems to do a much better job. I eventually just threw my remaining RO Right away. If you compare the two powders side by side you can see a huge difference in texture. The equilibrium is more like a chalky mixture and the Ro Right is more like a salt.
