High ph Well water vs city water with chloramines
I have county tap water at my house. My in laws next door have well water. I can choose either as a water source for my tank.
The well water seems to have high ph, up to 9 almost, but my tap water is loaded with chloramine. Even after I treat it, it still shows ammonia readings for days.
They both keep my fish happy, but it want to maximize my plant growth with high light, co2, and fertilizers.
Which would be the better route? Isn't lower ph needed for co2 to work correctly?
I'm buying a gh kh test kit tomorrow to see just how much co2 I'm getting.
Does anyone have suggestions on witch source to choose, and some tips to get the parameters where they need to be?
Any help,is appreciated.
