I'm looking to get a five gallon tank, plant with java moss and other easy type plants and keep a betta.
My tap water is horrible, so I'm thinking I'll be using distilled water. My question is, can anyone give me products and measures for a five gallon to remineralize and stabilize the water? As exact as you can get would be appreciated. I don't really trust myself to get the figures right lol

I would do a 80% RO/ 20% tsp mix at first and treat the water. Then adjust it as needed.

What’s your tap water parameters anyway?

I don't have numbers, but I will say that the water has an orange tint and smells horrible(well water). We don't even drink/cook with it, so I certainly wouldn't want to subject a fish to it....

Oh ok then. Don’t mix with the RO water with any of that well water!

Seachem equillibrium is used often to treat RO water.
