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?

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.
