Dkh

I'm new to all this, but I've got to the stage where I need to run the cycle. I haven't started the cycle because I'm still buying some tests, but this dkh has really thrown me offcourse! Do I need test kit, or do I calculate it somehow? Please help

You will probably want an alkalinity test.

There is a lot to learn for sure, but once you get your head wrapped around it all it's not too bad.
