It sounds interesting. If you do use the product please let us know how it works for you. There are a lot of posts about curling fins. I was not aware it was caused by hard water.

From what I have heard, curled fins can also be genetic. I have some boys with curled fins, yet I have very soft water. Before you start trying to mess with hardness, you need to know your current water hardness. Water hardness isn't something that you should be messing with unless you absolutely have to. It's a much more complex process than just dropping something into the aquarium. I suggest you read this article: http://www.tropicalfishkeeping.com/freshwater-articles/water-hardness-ph-freshwater-aquarium-73276/

As well as reference this guide: United States Water Hardness Map, What is my water hardness?
