Hello! I have had a fish tank for 2 weeks. I currently live on hard well water. I was wondering if I can stick water conditioner to help the hardness of the water ? The Ph balance is at high alkaline aswell as total alkalinity. Ive also been gifted a betta and 2 mollies! I’m not quite sure what to do about the hardness! Will it hurt them ?

I'm pretty sure they'll be fine. What is your ph?

Ok the only way I know of to lower your kh and gh is either a mix of ro water and well water. Or you could even try distilled. I'm def not a pro on the ways to lower hardness. I do believe that the fish can adapt but would be nice to lower the hardness a little.

Thank you! I will give that a try
