• "Can I use water mixed with Alum to fill the aquarium?" Don't do it. "Will it kill the fish? " It could. Alum is usually used to "sterirlze" equipment and especially plants by killing snails and other invertebrates. A solution strong enough to do any good will be dangerous to the fish and more importantly to the "good" bacteria that break down the waste products from the fish that you want living in your filter. A common solution is a table spoon of alum to a gallon of water and then the plant is left in the solution for only 5 minutes then thouroughly rinsed in running water. Just forget about using any alum in the aquarium itself. Even if it does seem like it would make kissing guoramis really pucker up.
