I currently mix half raw well water with half RO water for use in my aquarium. This involves bypassing the water softener. The softerner's bypass valve is very awkward to use and, being plastic, it scares us. I can get water from a spigot between the well and the softener but it is really turbulent. If I let a glass of water sit, I get a good 1/8" of sediment. I want to filter the water directly from the well. How many microns should I shoot for? Oh, and the pressure at the well is about 60 psi, if that matters. Thanks.
We're about half way through raising Bristlenose Plecos for the Breeders Award Program. Since we've compiled a fun video journal so far, thought we'd post this. A few months ago we found our BNPs spawning in our African Cichlid tank, and puzzled over whether to pull the eggs or leave them to survive. We left them . . . and they did not survive . . . so, following good advice from some experienced PVAS members, we've now pulled a batch. The results are fantastic! Happy New Year PVAS
