So confused. Is water from the water softener safe or not? That is what we have for our house. We got it because our well water was brown (from the iron). So I'm so confused now because this is the only alternative from buying gallons of water from the store. It's not safe for the fish??? :(

Sorry for the confusion.... Everyone here is speaking from there own experiences and there are lots of them. I have found that my water softener has been safe for my fish (not my snails! ) The only reason I'm going to get spring water is so that I can keep a snail in my 5 gal. tank. It's already cycled so once I do a 100% change, I will only be replacing 25% of the water every 2-4 days. That's only about a gal a week so for me, it's worth it. I do use Stress Zyme and Stress Coat everytime I add/change water. I make sure the water is close to the same temp as what's in the tank.

Anyway, good luck darlin'. Keep us posted!
