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!
