Water Advice for IAV

2 posts in this topic

I've been reading, asking questions, and testing my resolve for a year now. It's time for me to get started on my IAV sytem. It will have a 300 gal fish tank stocked with native Channel Catfish.

I have 2 water sources, well water and tap water. Our buildings all have metal roofs so I'd be scared of collecting rain water from them. When I did my bucket tests last year, to validate my sand, I found the following water ph values:

Well water tested 6.4 .

Tap water tested 7.4 .

Please advise me or point me to info regarding water quality and what, if any, steps are needed to start my system up from a water POV.
