I got my TDS meter today. The tap water is around 160 ppm. All
tanks except one read in at around 260 ppm. One tank (the newest one)
reads in at 530 ppm. The only thing different about this is it has Profile
fracted clay substrate and Osmocotes in the substrate. I have had some
NRBD die in that tank unexpectedly. I wonder if the fracted clay is
leaching into the water. I am not looking forward to breaking the tank
down again. The other fish are listless.
