Tap water resutlst are: pH7.6, Nitrite .5 ppm, Ammonia 0, dKH 4, dGh 6 ... so I think I am getting the point here. So I guess I should go with tap water and just use AmQuel and NovAqua; however, I would still like to find out what the target range for water hardness is. I do have plants on the way, they should arrive by Monday or Wednesday at the latest, I am counting on them putting the whole system in place. I just don't want to hurt them! If I want to increase water hardness is it safe to use the RO right with the tap water?
