    I used treated tap. In my 75 because I dont have a ro unit and I needed a place for my fishes. My picos are both distilled. If I wanted to switch my 75gal from tap to ro would I just pull it all out or would I have to take everything out and clean it?

    Neither. I would just do small, weekly water changes with the r.o. water for a few months.
