    No matter what type of salt water tank, you should use RO/DI water.. You never know what is in your tap water.

    There's a place on Hazeldean west of Eagleson in Kanata that sells 5 gallons of RO/DI water for $3.50 - I used that to get started and have a RO/DI unit for top ups and water changes.

    The place on Hazeldean is called Aquatica. I get my water there for $2.50 per 5 gallon bottle if you pre-pay on one of their packages.

    Cheers

    I think they charge a $10 deposit on each bottle. Eventually, for ease of access and cost reasons, you'll want to get your own RO/DI unit.

    Yes, you get your $10.00 per bottle back when you return them.

    Get an RO/DI unit from Ivan asap. I finally have one set up and i would easily bet that i purchased the unit a couple times over in bottled water.
    It works for the short run but get one as soon as you can afford it.
