Re: RO water? was (no subject)
One of the greatest problems keeping fish is the availability of
changing water. If one is limited to purchased gallon jugs of water,
the frequency and quantity of water changes is self-limited.
This is not a good situation to place ones self in. The local food
store also offers distilled or deionized water in gallon containers.
Same thing goes, limited.
Over the years and through most all the genera of Killies, I have not
found any group which I could not spawn in great profusion in local
tap water. Just get the chlorine out and get the pH below 8.
Stick with what you have in the greatest volume and ease. Change as
much water as often as you can.
