KittenFishMom Posted March 2, 2022 Share Posted March 2, 2022 What do I need to use to treat distilled water in clean tanks with clean filters to be able to put fish in it? I have fritz 7 and SeaChem Stability. What can I buy at PetSmart? PetSmart does not have Seachem Equilibrium. I have problems with my well water and aquariums and am not sure how to proceed. My well water got cloudy, which reduced my VU filters effectiveness. Now the tap water from the well has coliform in it. I am getting smelly white and brown slimy stuff in my aquariums. The fish are still doing well, but I don’t know how long that will last. I have 5 active 10-gallon tanks. 2 are very effected due to water changes, 3 are doing OK, but need water changed. I can take the goldfish to the lfs, to reduce the number of active tanks by 1. (Maybe a distilled water change on the goldfish would work and take less time than taking them to the fish store?) When I was cycling a new tank. I put in my 4 sponge filters to use as seed filters when I restarted the other tanks because of the leeches. Can I boil those sponge filters, or will they melt/fall apart in boiling water? I have 10 gallons of distilled water. I can buy more. I can go to PetSmart and buy stuff to set my 2 empty 15 tanks. I will have to clean filters, and do some type of quick temp bottled cycling if I am to put fish in them. The complicating factor is my mom’s platelet count dropped to 8 on Monday as was still 8 Tuesday after a platelet infusion. So, I have been staying with her. My husband can stay with her for a while this afternoon, while I do some work on the tanks, but it will be a very limited amount of time, and I cannot watch the tanks afterwards I am afraid all my plants may be affected too. I have gotten rid of so many plants and have spent so much on replacing them. Is there a good way to treat my plants so they don’t bring the problem into the new tanks as I set them up?
