View Full Version : Tetra Aqua - Easy Balance

The area that I live in has super hard water out of the tap. I have addressed this by stocking my aquarium with mainly distilled water. Seeing that this water is a little raw, I have been looking for some buffers to stabilize my water and prevent drastic ph shifts. I have been using Easy Balance as of recently and it seems okay, but the claims on the label are a bit hard to believe. Plus some friends in another state, with much softer water, uses barley stray to soften and temper his water. Any suggestions? Should I stay with what I am using, or shift to a more natural substance like barley straw, or pete?

ideally, you should switch to hardwater fish. the best place to ask this question would be the american forums...i'll move the thread.
