Can you test the water before it gets to the softener? If it's "acceptable" just use that.

But that...

Don't forget the food going into those fish. And what about same species from different, isolated populations? Or even more simply, wild vs farmed. Lots and lots of variables. :nerd:

You forgot the need to use hundreds of individuals of many different species to avoid making conclusions from too small of a sample. So maybe a lot more than 8 tanks. :wink2:

I'm with PlantedRich on liberal bleach use. It kills anything you wouldn't want in your tank. I use it at a much stronger concentration, too, with no effects if processed out by a chemical remover...
