Re: RO or Ion-Exchange Resins??

Most ion-exchange resins that you can get from pet stores will do nothing to
reduce the dissolved mineral content of your water. As the name implies,
they are simply exchanging one ion for another, usually sodium for calcium.
They are recharged by putting in salt solution. It hardly seems beneficial
to be adding salt ions to the water when you're dealing with apistos.
