Most people do not use RO water in their planted tanks.

What I would reccomend is to use 10% RO and 90% normal tap water, or some ratio like that to acheave the test levels you are looking for.

Our water here in phoenix is VERY hard, with a very high KH and the KH turns out to be a big Benifit when you are injecting CO2.

I usually use 2/3 tap and 1/3 r/o water in my main tank. We have pretty hard water down here in south texas. The only reason I do it is for the discus and tetras, the plants like the hard water.
