That depends on what fish you intend to keep. If you were to keep Nothos,
for example, you would certainly want to add salt (about 1 tsp per gallon)
and probably harden the water a little, maybe by adding some limestone.
Other killies like soft acid water. You'll need to look through some of the
books to see which.
