Hard water has minerals like calcium and magnesium in it. I don't think it's a matter of 'adding' it to your water, if that's what you were thinking.

It depends on where your get your water from. I think soft water is more common in natural wells and the like. You'll want to test your water to see what it is.

I don't think you need to worry about it. If you haven't noticed fin curling before then you probably won't have a problem.

I actually have a question about the water. What's considered hard water? I boguht a test kit today which included testing the hardness and it read somwhere between 30 and 60 ppm. Is that okay for a Crowntail?

That background looks familiar...how big is his tank?

Oh nvm...it seems you have a 1.5 gal. Sorry, it looked like the background I saw on a .5 Gal kit.
