One of the challenges any aquarium owner faces is to get fresh enough water supply for the aquarium. This is easier said than done. Most people, their only source of water is the faucet and tap water is not chemically pure water. First, it has chlorine. Most modern water systems take water from rivers and streams and filter it and to kill any bacteria that is in the water, they pump it with chlorine. While this is okay for human beings, this is not okay for fish, especially freshwater fish
. Another potential toxic danger that is present in tap water is fluoride.
Most American cities fluorinate their tap water by adding fluorine to the water. This is used to prevent tooth decay among the water users. Indeed after cities started doing this in the U.S., the visits to the dentist for drilling has gone down. It is that effective. Again, the fluorinated water is not that healthy for your freshwater fish. Finally if your municipal water system gets its water from deep wells, the water might have a lot of hard water deposits. While many fish can live with the elevated calcium levels, this might be very hard on your aquarium's tubing system because minerals tend to pile up and the more they pile up, the more pump systems might get clogged and the buildup would result in the pump working extra hard. What can you do?
