    Great episode thanks guys.

    But i have an question for Jurijs. You say that you dose your RO water straight in the tank, so you dont use any reminelizer because your RO water is almost the same as dead water?. Are you not affraid that you will lost your buffering from your kh, and get ph drops.

    Sorry for my bad english writing, im from the Netherlands.

    Great work and very informative

    One question for all the three.

    I am a beginner can you say in detail why we need to make massive water change in the beginning , as we are draining all the minerals in the soil.
