Equilibrium, how much?

Just wondering what rate you guys mix your RO with equilibrium.
I used to use RO right, but have recently switched to equilibrium.
I run low to med light in my tanks. I do not use tap water as my well water is way too hard, so I was curious what others were mixing it at.

I would have to say the answer should depend on what you are raising livestock wise.

Some tank members outright need somewhat hard water, others do best in pretty soft water.

I don't use RO water, but I use equilibrium to boost the GH of my tap water from 7dGH to 10dGH (I have snails, and Mollies).
