Thanks - I'm not exactly sure what kH is and I don't have a test kit for it. I've been looking at the website for our city's water supply and parameters. However, there are 12 different ground wells our water comes from and I don't know which area I am in.
Saw some pretty scary things that can be present in our water because of the farmers, drainage, and the fact that it is ground water.
My tanks pH don't really fluctuate. They stay the same unless I add salt to a tank. It's just the pH is vastly different in the tanks from the straight tap water.
I've had one of my fish for over a year, now, using dechlorinated tap water.
