Hmmm. Do you reconstitute the R/O or use it directly? If you don't
reconstitute the water and this is your tank with the cyanobacteria

promoting the cyanobacteria growth.

I'd call that a light fish load.

I think of Amano's fish (+shrimp) loads as moderate. I suspect lots of us
on the list keep higher loads than Amano does.
