How do you make water soft?

Postby Walter Soestbergen » Sat Jan 31, 2004 12:34 pm

Providing soft water for discus is not easy! Even collecting something as pure as rain water has limitations. The use of R.O. units ( Reverse Osmosis ) is perhaps the easiest method for most people. Ion exchangers / Cation - Anion Resin Filter is another way to make water soft. Whichever method is used trace elements must be replaced before the water can be used since pure H2O will not be pH stable nor will it support the fish's metablolism for very long.
I'm myself, there are already enough others.
