    Ok. one thing i totally forgot like an idiot ok our water were we live is well, the water was so bad it had to get a purifing system in our basement and we put salt in it every so ofter. our water is great now, Of couse i still do prime. My new place is well water. Will this be a problem. Will my fish get usd to it. not sure if it is hard or soft; being from the foothills id assume hard but i dont honesly know what the filter 'fixes" in water quality. My fish will be stressed today anyway; will the new water stress them even more.

    Also same cycled media and same filters and a small bit of same rock, but new water, If water is treated with prime, could i expect a mini crash or my params go out of wack for a bit

    Will this be a problem.
    Test both - There's your answer.
    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.

    I think going from water from a softener to plain water might stress your fish because the salinity will be different, hopefully someone who knows for certain will come along to confirm or correct this. Before you put the fish in their new water check the parameters of the new water to see how different they are from their old water, don't forget to check GH, KH, and pH. After we know the parameters of the new water to compare to the old water it will be easier to answer your questions.
    As long as the media stays wet and aerated, and has an ammonia source it will be fine.
    When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.

    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Water softners tend to work via ion exchange substituting kalium for natrium. End result is rather salty. This may actually be one of those rare occassions where adding some aquarium salt (say half a teaspoon per 20 liters) in the first few water changes may make some sense. I'd slowly stop using that stuff though.
