    using RO water.

    Ozone out of a tap, after the ozone reacted to whatever chemicals in the water, where does it go? Where is the metal particle that reacted to become a piece of rust? Still in the water....

    So, RO it is

    RO!!
    I may still be a noob but from the experience of 2 losses from using the wrong water, trust me, RO is the only way to go!

    Somebody suggested bottled water with a very low TDS, which I used. The corals I had seemed fine but I lost an African clown and a baby butterfly. That was in my old Jebo R338, so I have only been using RO in my current nano.

    Ultimate Aquatics sells its for R15 for 20L, or speak to Gareth at Pet Boutique at The Bridge. Alternatively, you could ask a fellow local reefer who has an RO unit to help you out.

    yeah, I'd also go with the RO unit, though do your homework nicely to get a unit with less waist water spec.
