i think its all a matter of the quality of water that you are dealing with. for example, if you make your own water, are you using tap, bottled water, ro
water... after answering that, how is that quality (water parameters?) i found that using the lfs
water, here, wasnt far from the tap in my apt and i had to buy premade "ocean" water from petco, and it was far better, although FAR more expensive ($10 for 5 gal
, OUCH). it also depends on the acclimation process...... hth
the key is testing i spose......
