ewww I don't like hard water xD


Ithink this might have been asked elsewhere, but what type of betta is the best option for starting out? Especially if you're hoping for decent quality?

I seem to have a problem with collecting things with scales and fins. Oops

SUCKS - Hard.. high gh and kh. And something in my water.. maybe the pipes of this old place I live.. gave me failed spawns or fry that never got free swimming. After losing 12 spawns I went to all RO and have not had water problems. I do add minerals back in and have my kh=6-7, gh 3-4 and the ph runs 7-7.2. I also add mico nutrients. TDS runs about 160-170. I have just what I need in it, nothing more. IF I add salt.. I know what I'm adding in relation to everything else.

Depends on what you like and what your goal. Pet or breeding for shows.

I'll be living in the Killeen area. I hope the water is suitable for bettas.
