I am using EasyLife Fluid Filter Medium after each WC for a bit more then the actual water change. Not sure if this will help but I am atleast hoping it will help some. I know about the Cl in the tap but after using the easy lifes it goes from measurable on my tests to none measurable after a couple of hours so I am guessing it does something at least.
Unfortunately I do not have any possibility to install a RODI system where I live, my gf would kill me.
Did not realize the copper might pose a problem though but really not much I can do about it. Shrimp seems to be the first to react to copper but I have a steady pop of 100+ amanos in the tank.

Anyway what I really need help with is still the pinholes, might be tox. Sure as hell isnt lack of potassium in the water anyways.
And I still would like to make a potassium reference solution so I can verify my test kits.
Only thing I measured that seems to be low is Mg in the water. Might this cause the issues with pinholes?
