That's what I was thinking I was hoping it was 20. I'm trying to hold off on a water change do to the new tank arriving next week, I'm gonna need that SW to help refill an established tank once I move it here

Ok just tested my KH after one drop its "yellow" which would put my ppm at 17.9 I'm assuming that's not to good since the book says it should be about 8 to 12?
