Water softener bypass, fixed! Now what?
Many of you know about my water issues, but I had a friend come fix the bypass valve on the water softener today. Now the question is how slowly should I transition the tank? The pH has stayed around 8.4 due to the softener. The owner of a LFS told me to do 25% water changes every few days. I asked him about treatment for a few of my fish that I thought had columnaris and he said the improved water quality should be enough.
Should I add carbon?
