Looking to get a reverse osmosis system to set up a automatic water change for my tank. Not sure what one I would need or where is the best place to get one from so any advice is good thanks.

RO water is pretty much pure h2o and doesnt contain the necessary electrolytes and minerals your fish need to survive.... maybe consider this before buying an RO unit :)

Vebas sell ro units and carry spares.

As Johno said, ro water is too pure. You'd need to store the ro water in a container. I used a 240l plastic rubbish bin from Bunnings and get that water to a suitable PH GH and KH before adding to the tank.

Best bet is to talk to Pacco at Vebas before jumping into a RO system :)

I have read on many occasions that it is recommended to use RO water mixed with a little tap water for ideal discus keeping?
