Does anyone use these for there water in the tank or are most people just using regular tap water for water changes?? I see they are a little pricey but are they worth the expense??

they are worth the expense provided you need R/O water... do you though? You've not said which fish you need R/O water for.

an RO filter is not worth buying for African Rift Lake cichlids...

I agree, an RO filter would completely defeat the purpose for most African cichlids. I use RO water but I have (mostly) SA...and even then the RO water has to be reconstitued with regular tap water (treated of course) for buffering.
