I was told that having a water softener that uses salt is a no-no for a planted tank. Is this true? Would there be harm in doing water changes with this water?
I use this
type of salt.
I am confused as this really hampers my water change. Since this is a whole home softener, I only have an outside spigot that is not on the system. This would mean that I would have to fill a few 5 gallon buckets with water and let it heat to room temperature before doing a water change, instead of being able to use the python hose.
Basically what I am asking, is was I told correct? Is having a water softener really that big of an issue?
Thanks in advance.
