As of tonight it is down to 933.
At this rate 4 more days it should be 400 or less. Nitrate is way down and GH is about 50.
Nitrate is 25.

Gotta get the gh to around 6-15, it's okay for it to be a bit higher, there's a lot of discussion on what is to high of gh but I guess that depends of what makes up the gh, I know someone who has a gh of 19 but still doses equilibrium to increase due to his tap Water doesn't contain much K, MG, CA, FE, I wouldn't go by tds I would go by GH/KH, but testing that right now would take 3 kits to do it as there's only so many drops in the test.

Just remember for every 15-20 tds is roughly 1 gh.

You called me potroast

I would focus on getting that TDS down then dose Seachem Equilibrium. Get GH around 10.

I was like yaassss I'm edible , I took no offense it make me laugh lol, yes what I was saying is to test gh at his levels would cost a bunch of money as it would take one bottle of solution per test, 10 is a good number for gh, but kh is also really important so pH doesn't drop so the op needs to switch up for reminerialization to something different than equibrium in my personal opinion.

As of tonight my TDS is 613. Looks like by Wednesday I should be where I want to be and then I can fine tune a couple other perimeters and then maintain it this way.
