Can hard water low tech planted tanks contain high Na + Cl ?
I was thinking of trying a low tech planted tank with my natural tap water. The problem is it contains 287ppms of Cl , & 171ppms Na. No, its not water softener water, just tap water! The Mg is around 17ppms , & Ca 52ppms. TDS 762ppms, Gh17, Kh7. My better judgment tells me most plants will not tolerate this, but the question is can I grow some plants that will grow well with the high Cl + Na ? The idea I had was low light 6500K bulbs with Flourite only substrate with some circulation + light on the dry ferts , dose to 10ppms of nitrate, dose macros + traces.
Am I barking up the wrong tree?
I know some natural native plants do grow in this water, just not sure what they are. I would like to try even if limited to Vails & Eledia. Will swords tolerate this kind of hard water?
