I like Aquariums, hate douches.
Soft water has more to do with GH than pH. Typical home water softeners soften water using a technique known as "ion exchange''.

That is, fish that prefer soft water don't like sodium either, and for them such water softeners don't help at all. Thus, home water softeners are not an appropriate way to soften water for…Continue

Anacharis, Anubias, Bacopa, Cabomba, Hornwort, Water Sprite,…Continue
