    Default Water Softener - OK for fish?


    0 Not allowed!
    We recently moved to the country from the city where we have well water that has really heavy iron and iron bacteria. To keep the water clear and soft we have a water softener and since we moved I believe my aquarium has more algae and my Betta fish's fins look sad. I don't think it is good for them.

    Does anyone else have a well treated with a softener who can help me out here? I am tempted to do WC with our bottled water but it will get pretty spendy over time. Help!

    Thanks,

    ~Froggy
