Hi again ☺,

Does anyone know the best way to lower hard water from the Tap with out a RO system (if that is right)?

Contemplating on getting cardina shrimp next but my GH is 180+

No, sorry. I installed a small RO system when I started keeping caridina and it was neither expensive nor difficult to install.

Rainwater, if you have a large enough water butt to store the water for your given tank size.

You can also buy RO water if you don't want to use an RO system yourself, either from a LFS or from a dedicated supplier like Spotless Water.

Also you'll want a substrate that lowers the pH anyway, lots of shrimp soils out there.

Also, RO systems easily screw onto taps, in case this helps you out? Some people don't like the waste of water though, in which case rainwater is your friend.
