I moved in the middle of October to Cambridge Ontario. Went from neutral water with a pH of 7.4 ish and around 8-9 gh and kh and TDs of about 175.
See attached and the link below for info on my current water.
My Water Hardness | Water Softener Facts
Cambridge and the surrounding area is the hardest water in Canada. In my specific area we are look at 24-28 grain per gallon of hardness. Hard water marks on everything
Anyways, my tank has been an a steady decline and is showing no signs of improving at all. I am wondering if I simply cannot do plants in this sort of water.
Plants I have are bolbitis, anubias Nana petite and barteri and needle leave Java fern
The picture hides the ugly stuff pretty good.
Hardly any growth, stalled.
Algae starting to creep in, haven't had algae in this for a long time.
Any thoughts or suggestions? Thinking about pulling all the plants and selling what I can before it gets to bad and focusing on hardscape only.
