What's wrong with this tap water?  I also live in San Diego and I have used
this same tap water for my tank for 5 years with no problem.  I am
currently adding more calcium to my water because my plants suck it up so
fast they constantly show signs of calcium deficiency whenever I don't
change water for more than 2 weeks.
