you want between 9 & 11 which would give you a meq/L of between 3.2 & 4. If you have a dKh
of 4 then that's pretty low. Don't do anything drastic though. Move your numbers in a well paced manor. Your calcium is good, just watch it as you bring up your alk
. If you add alk
too fast you'll cause your calcium to precip out. If you use baking soda make sure that you watch the pH carefully. You may want to use a supplement like Seachem's 8.3 so that your pH caps at a safe level.
