    I'm getting ready to start my first reef aquarium, a 93 gallon system. I've read on several forums that I should invest in an RO/DI system. My question is, is my water ok as it is?

    I am new to the hobby and i am in the process of setting up a 90g reef tank. I have been told that the use of tap water in conjunction with a dechlorinator/purifier is ok for the initial setup but after that i should use ro/di water for water changes. From reading numerous books and arcticles i...
