Now with the stuff posted, you'll find that at the homestore: But read the label! Either get something that's organic and/ or since its for gardening, make sure there's nothing else in there like Miracle grow fet's etc
Anything you'd wanna look at has got to be rich on calcium to avoid the acid that's currently there and harden the water - So what most fish keeping hobbyists AVOID to not have in the tank, that's what you'd want.
Its easy to test if whatever you get is rich on calcium or not: Either use your NO2 Reagen 1 or Vinegar that you hopefully have in the house. Drop some on the XYZ you find today if its fuzzing & bubbling up real nice - That's what you want (its a chem reaction between the acid from the vinager and the calcium). Normally this test is done to know what not to put in the tank - But works for your case too
Dang I wish you were closer to me, I have a whole bag stuff sitting outside you could use right now to get the hardness up
