Best way to soften water?
My water is very hard. What is the best way to lower it? I can't afford a RO unti at the moment. Do the water pillows really work? Any other really cheap effective ways?

Use RO water. Do you have a reason to soften the water?

You can use aquarium peat in your filter it will soften and acidify the water.

No pillow softeners do not work. What are you doing to lower your ph? Luckily better stores sell r/o water for about .30 a gallon. Probably better off than having your own unit.You just beed to buy water containers which are $8-10 each. Also an additive called r/o right which replaces mineralization and any vitamins you like. I' changing my 50g over with water changes.
I read a different post of yours , is the difficulty in ph manipulation why you want to switch?

You should be able to pick up an R/O unit for pretty cheap on ebay.

When I tested my water it came back as being very hard.
