    Help with reading Aquatech water test chart

    Hello,
    Iím hoping that someone can help me understand this well water test which I donít totally understand. It also stated that there is Radon In the well water.

    Iím wondering if this is affecting the quality of my fish and plants . My fish seem fine but plants constantly die after awhile. I have had my main tank for over 3 yrs and have spent so much $ on plants that end up dying. My bosemani rainbows seem great and even had been successful breeding but Iím concerned if my water will affect their life span. I rent so I canít install a rodi unit or have a sump.
    Thank you in advance for your time, help and advice.

    Hi Kookyxogirl and welcome to fish-keeping.com

    I've got to say that report as gone straight over my head sorry. So it looks like you are using well water for all your needs ? if so is this pumped to your house ? and again if so do you use any kind of RO system to get rid of any contamination in the water ? I see you said that you rent but that should not stop you from getting a portable RO unit to get pure water out of.

    What sort of lighting are you using in your tank for the plants, please let me know

    Regards Gary.

    Hi Gary,
    Thank you for replying. Yes I am using the well water for my aquarium. I have a Fluval 3.0 led set at 80 % except for blue which is at 5%.
    I am unable to hook up anything to the plumbing since I am renting and donít have much space at all, aquariums are in my bedroom!
