Planted Discus Tank: Water
I have an RO unit and use it for my planted discus tank. My plants havn't been doing great, they just dont seem to thrive. I'd like to hear specifics on what others have been mixing their RO water with-besides tap water.
Im having a hard time keeping the TDS low, while still getting the correct Ca and Mg levels, without using to much phospates.
I've been playing around with different mixes of RO right, discus essential, baking soda, and straight Ca and Mg. My mixing tank is 46gallons..
Don't want to mix with tap because it is just too unstable here to be consistent. Please let me know what has worked for you.
