At my LFS last night I noticed some aluminum plants for sale, remembering the
discussion here I became mildly curious.  Doesn't a LFS have some sort of

the medium?  There must be some legal remedy to discourage this practice.  All

I was reading the FAQ at the newsgroup homepage, but I never really came
across a conversion method for R/O water or distilled to the desired
chemistry.  I know alot of you use R/O units, but my twenty-nine gallon tank
makes the idea of one kind of silly.  Purchasing R/O and distilled water from
my LgroceryS what ratio do I need to mix my tap water and this bottled water
to get the desired figures.
Tap water is 37ppm total hardness and 8.2pH, as tested by aquarium pharm. test
I do not know the KH as I haven't found one of these kits for sale in
Rochester.  Bottled water is 0 ppm of hardness and 6.0pH.
