Hi bro i planning to use those bottles of API products i bought on impulse, Stress Coat, Quick Start and Stress Zymes. I totally forgot about Seachem products when i was at C328 last week. If dun use sibei sayang.. waste $$
Actually if you aerate a tank of water over three days, you do not need Stress Coat, etc.
As for tapwater, you need to measure the PH. Aquamedic PH minus is recommended to lower PH. Your new soil have the capability to stablise the PH but introduction of water, you need something stable.
So maybe get a plastic tank with air pump and air stone, you can put cool boiled water. I keep them in 1.5L bottle without aeration. I use them to top up the tank.
Now TDS wise, I use NTUC Pure drinking water, 1 carton cost you $5.90 online. 1 NTUC bottle vs 3 bottle of boiled water/3 days aerated tap water.
TDS if you control it properly, cleanliness should not be an issue.
