Welcome to the forum.

, cause hey I'm still confused. However....you are more than welcome to tag along, just be sure to laugh along too (bring lotsa butter for the popcorn lol)
I am using ro
water. I started with tap, used the conditioner. Carey said it was ok to start cause I wanted to dump it and start over, and she's right you can use tap and the conditioners to START with but you really really need an ro
water filter. So when you get one you can then replace your tap water in your tank with pwc
's of like 10% weekly. I still dumped it all out and started again though lol.
That was in June.July..IDK, but as of right now my 75Gallon is EMPTY AGAIN. Starting over again. I got a new stand, transferred things out to a temp home but looks like they are not getting back in anytime soon. Was filling and then broke a thermometer.
By the way everyone I am kinda glad I did empty, as I found 3 more good sized pieces of glass and 1 small one. Back breaking to sift all of that, but I have piece of mind that I got out as much as I could. If I did nothing I would have kept right on worrying.
