super hard water am I doomed?
I just moved a couple years ago I into our first house and have had nothing but trouble. I had two bn plecos full grown and healthy die a few months after moving in and anything I buy dies in a month. Thats just the fish my plants have all stopped growing and are just dormant. Only change is water. I just tested my tap water. Kh 18 gh 28 ph 8.4 copper 0.25. I have a tanganyika tank that is doing great all the fish are healthy and new fish acclimate just fine. I know they love the hard water though.
so without ro am I doomed to kill every plant and fish I get that isnt from a rift lake in africa?
