Fish Folk Posted February 26, 2022 Share Posted February 26, 2022 I hate to admit it, but I’ve _never_ “rested” Water. The idea is that giving water 24+ hrs from tap to rest allowed things to gas’s off, chemistry to settle down, etc. My motive was to add some tannins via Catappa leaf + Alder cones + Rooibos tea before topping off my Betta and Killi tanks. I did use Prime, though maybe unnecessary, and added light botanicals. Here’s a look a day later… And here’s how I siphon, with a panty-hose over the pail end to keep cone fragments out… I have added botanicals to the tank itself as well. Temperature difference is a caution. The temp dipped 10°-F from sitting in my cold basement. With heaters though, that will bounce back. It should feel like “rain.” 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
