    RO water would be the easiest way to go. The LFS by me sells it to people. I never tried breeding tetras so I have no use for it. We have neutral water where I live. 100% mississippi river, only a few hundred miles from the source!

    +1 I concur completely.

    Simply put: You can either acclimate your fish to your source water one time or you can adjust your water forever, The choice is yours.
    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

    What's often overlooked here is that hardness plays a much bigger role. Yes you can adapt soft water fish to hard water and vice versa but those fish are generally very disease prone and won't live nearly as long

    The ONLY correct manner to type the short symbol for the acidity or basicity of water (related to ionized hydrogen donation or acceptance ability of the water) is ONLY to type this name as


    not PH or ph.

    Please people, lets use the correct form; this isn't just being a sloppy typist but a very specific scientific definition that is defined as pH and no other typing is acceptable because it isn't what you mean!!! Those other forms do not mean pH.

    End of rant.

    Knowledge is fun(damental)

    A 75 gal with eight Discus, fake plants, and a lot of wood also with sand substrate. Clean up crew is down to just two Sterba's Corys. Filters: continuous new water flow; canister w/UV, in-tank algae scrubber!! Finally, junked the nitrate removal unit from hell.
