 Dear  All,
 
 Due  to  the  ongoing  monsoon  the  water  supplied  by  the  Corporation  contains  some  fine  dirt  which  cannot  be  removed  by  any  filtration  process  and  it  is  stressing  the  Fish.  
 
 What  needs  to  be  done  to  clear  the  water  before  adding  it  to  the  Aquarium?  Can  I  use  ALUM  (Phitkari)  to  filter  the  water  before  adding  it  to  the  Aquarium?  Kindly  let  me  know.
 
 Any  help  will  be  highly  appreciated.
 
 Thank  you.
 Deba……

 Alum  is  not  recommended  for  fish  tanks!  For  complete  peace  of  mind  invest  in  an  RO  filter.  For  less  expensive  options  aerate  the  water  for  24  hours  at  tepid  temperature  (hint:  use  a  cheap  aquarium  heater  without  the  thermostat  in  a  bucket  aerated  by  an  airstone)  then  let  it  cool  down  to  room  temp  and  finally  supplement  with  a  good  water  conditioner  before  adding  to  tank.
 
 Some  "filter  plants"  in  the  tank  (anacharis/elodea,  hydrilla,  cabomba)  make  water  changes  less  stressful  to  the  fish.
 
 Depending  on  your  fish,  you  may  consider  adding  some  blackwater  tonic.
 
 HTH  -
