is it safe to add some boiled water to tapwater for water changes ?
is it alright to add some boiled water to bring the temperature up when doing water changes ? i have done two water changes since i set my 200ltr tank up on the 24/11/12 i done one on the 30Th a 10ltr change and one today a 40ltr change i have been doing this with buckets of cold tap-water filled 3/4 up and topped up with boiled water from a kettle so as not to stress the fish to much witch are 3 giant giant danios to help with cycling i also add aqua plus into the buckets before adding into the main tank, i know my tank is still cycling and i have had a problem with a bacterial bloom but looks a lot cleaner after i done that water change earlier today i hope things will improve now. please let me know if i am doing the right thing where the boiled water is concerned. thanks everyone. :thankyou:
Are you able to control the temperature of your tap water at all ?
no i am just comparing with feeling with my fingers.
Boiling water isn't necessary. 8-)
Just be sure and use dechlorinator with new water,preferrably,,before you use the new water in your aquarium.
big thank you 1077.
