Further to recent posts, please note the FK caveats to this linky
Whilst the link and article generally gave some helpful info at a time when info was sparse on the net, FK usually add 2 caveats.
Firstly - Tetra. The phrase 'tolerant tetras' usually sends shivers down any FK advisers spine. X Ray Tetra/ Black Emperor Tetra for example, have shown to be 'slightly' longer lived in higher pH, GH but that doesn't mean they actually thrive.
Secondly - Adding rain water. Not recommended by FK. Goodness knows all sorts of pollutants/muck/bugs or contaminants is in that if you store it.
