    After reading pure water is great for aquariums I decided last night to spruce the fish tank up so a trip to pets at home and 50 quid later and few ornaments home I went
    Hours later tank all clean and pure water in looks nice,I'm now eager to wake this morn to see my beautiful tropical crystal clear water!!!!!
    I must say wow the water is crystal crystal clear but then I notice where's my fish???all laid on the bottom not moving!!!
    Yikes the kids will kill me!!

    I think they can live in RO only water but not RO and DI - perhaps if it's 000 tds they can't live in it!?!

    In my experience fish from that place don't exactly have the longest life expectancy anyway

    I've killed a few off in my time too when cleaning and changing the water in the tank we had.
    It's seems warm blooded tropical fish don't like cold water much. Oops! :D
