ChrisS Posted November 7, 2017 Report Share Posted November 7, 2017 Hi, I am getting back into the hobby and setting up my first tank. However, I have some trouble dealing with our rainwater supply. I kept east African cichlids back in Europe (15 yrs ago) as our water supply was quite hard (>16 °dH). Since in New Zealand we moved into a rural area and are on tank water stored in concrete tanks (3yrs old). My current water parameters are: pH 6.8 KH <20ppm GH <20ppm Which was fine with me as it opened the possibility to keep all those species that I wasn't able to in Europe (without RO), like Tetras and Corys. Now, I am starting to fear that my water will be too artificial and may miss some necessary components for fish and plants. But there should be plenty of people around this forum facing similar situations! So should I be concerned and try to blend my water with some water from work (Palmerston North), add some minerals (eg. Seachem, Epsom,...)? Many Thanks Chris Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
