As a few of you already know My fish Genie has had finrot for close to three months now.
When I got him he was missing his entire right ventral fin and 3/4 of his right pectoral fin as well.
His pectoral grew back by mid-July.
His caudal unfortunately had a BIG chunk taken out of it about the time that his pectoral finished growing back.
Since then he hasn't really healed all that much. =[ The rip has healed some but not much.
I'm wondering if this is because of my hard water?
I've been testing my water and it's the hardest it can get. =[
I just did a water change 20 minutes ago with 1 gallon of tap water and 1 gallon of distilled (1/2 and 1/2) thinking it would help soften it.
In all truth it did... just not much. My hardness went from off the charts to 120. Which is just below the end of the scale.
I can't afford to keep buying britta filters like this and every time I try collecting rain water I don't catch any. =[ Well at least not much. not even enough to fill a drinking cup. =[ and it rains a lot here! >.<
Does anyone know a good way to soften your water without hurting your fish? Also an easy one if at all possible?
Thank you for reading and for whatever help you can give me! =]
A good method of rain collecting not involving gutters would be great! =]
