    No I have a fresh water tank however my tap has Bout 10 ppm of nitrate so when I do a water change it isn't droppig low. So can I if I do a 50% change pour in 2 gallons of distilled and 3 galons of tap to help lighted the nitrate load?

    You may want to try a carbon filter to absorb the nitrate. Do you have any type of a tap water filter you use?

    Not on my bathroom sink. Wouldn't carbon be bad for minerals that the plants need. d thought mixing tap and distiled would work

    I understand you currently have a FW aquarium. In the below thread you stated you were considering a salt water tank

    My suggestion to get a RO filter now in stead of some type of other filter was to help you save costs in the long run.
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    That salt water will take me a while to do for something effective will mixing distilled and tap work in the mean time. For a ten gallon
