NO, the RO water if filtered right (the RO system is being maintained properly), does not add to your Nitrates and Phosphates or Silicates. This are some of the contributing factor to algae growth, aslo as mentioned above, lighting also contribute to algae growth.Does using RO water stunt Macro-algae growth?
The crab and snail are reef safe, also note that tap water may also have other unwanted things, like copper (maybe not), sulfur and others. It is not a bad idea to really get to know what your tap water has. It can have a comulitive effect where you go months or possible a couple years with no problems, and than one day out of the blue everything dies and you are sitting there trying to figure out what happened.OK will do!
