Drip RO?

Has anyone made a continuous Drip RO system [instead of large water changes]?
Obviously this is in addition to normal filtration, but I'm imagining just a measly 0.1gph flow rate with a small RO setup (2-3 step) under a 20g tank.

Drip RO?

Yes lots of people have for different applications. Never done it myself so I can’t provide first hand knowledge but I have heard people talk about the continuous water change being highly beneficial for the fish, inverts so on.

Obviously you’d want to figure out keeping this new water full of the minerals and ferts you’d need. Maybe an autodoser.
