How to re mineralize my water for daphnia without making it toxic to my CPs

Hi guys, I recently bought some daphnia eggs for culture. I want to use them in my CP water to cut down on algea and feed my Utriculata. So I'm wondering how I can add some mineral back to my RO water and how to manage that with adding them to my CP water with out killing my plants. I'll probably just start melting snow in the winter but don't have rain water I can use. I would really appreciate any advice you might have. Thanks!

Green water or yeast water (slightly cloudy) is good food for your Daphnia. Make sure to not use tap water because the chlorine and other chemicals in it may kill your culture.

I use RO but there is zero mineral left in it. My TDM is like 1... I like Lloyd's suggestion of using run off water from my CP trays. Wish me luck!

It seems I have daphnia in my drainage water.
