Alkaline Buffer and Equilibrium
Due to past bad experiences with our tap water, I've always changed my tank water with distilled (only a ten gallon).
Somebody at my LFS mentioned that I should be using Seachem's Equilibrium with the distilled water. In the past, I haven't even been using stress-coat or the like on it.
What do you think? Should I be using Equilibrium? In addition, should I also be using an Alkaline buffer? I already use Seachem's Trace.
I have eco-complete substrate, and I thought that it was keeping everything in line just fine. gH = 5.5 degrees; kH = 3.5 degrees
