as far as the BW humic goes, is it just a buffer for the water that's already at 6.5? or can it be used like as peat moss or indian almond leaves can to actually bring the pH down? i'd like to keep shrimp other than neocaridina at some point, but my water is around 8.0 after sitting out of the tap, and i don't know KH, GH, or TDS out of tap but i bet they're all high. i get some nasty hard water stains and calcium deposits, and my water loves to buffer :l.
is there any way i can use tap water, or would i have to go RO (or can you do distilled)?
