    new to planted tanks (coming from saltwater) and wanted to know about the process of preparing water. For general water changes I already have a mixing station so if I use pure RODI water would I be safe just adding a correct dose of Equilibrium? anything else I'd need to add? besides fertilizer.

    From what I'm gathering on my thread you'd want to add something to raise the kh, be it tap water or baking soda.

    I add Alkaline Buffer as well, not sure if it's better than baking soda or not and worth it but My 300oz or whatever will last so long I didn't really care. I add enough Equilibrium and Alkaline Buffer to reach about 3-6dkh and 3-6dgh.

    No i don't think its necessary to add anything else. Low kh is good for most or all plants.
