Hello everyone,

I just bought a new house, which uses a well system for water. There is also a water softener (which I dont want to turn off, because it's better for the pipes). However, I had always wanted to set up a tank with shrimp, silver hatchetfish, and live plants.

But I dont really know anything about well water or soft water in the aquarium, or how it would work with the fish/plants I want. Does anyone know anything about keeping a tank with soft well water?

Water softeners that use salt are unsuitable for freshwater aquaria or plants because they exchange the calcium with sodium. Outside faucets are usually bypassed for this reason, so you could possibly use this water.
