OK, now where getting somewhere.  I have found that
my LFS doesn't always have the knowledge I would like.
Sometimes they also are motivated to sell.  Hey why not,
there a store!

Is it possible to have a second opinion on your tap water?
The water authority may very well be able to supply you
with a list of what's in there.  You could report that back
to the list here and get a second opinion on your water. This
is a lot less work than cleaning up algae from an overly
fertille tank.
