I am getting frustrated explaining myself over and over. If you are objecting to my method it needs to be stated more clearly.
I know that TDS
is not gH
. I could add a kilo of table salt to my water and not get a gH
reading out of it. I am not using a gH
test on the water, I am using a TDS
You said originally sodium is Na
, all I did was question that, so. . . .
First of all calm down, I've explained myself several times here and elsewhere without getting stressed! The point you missed is if you don't explain completely and at each stage, it can and does lead to misunderstanding. If you don't understand something, have my comments to you been so abrupt? In not so sure they have been.
Don't rely on at Tds
meter alone to Check a and b are the same, then transfer fish based on a tds
reading. This will cause you problems, I know I did it, if you choose to disregard that, well that's your choice. It's fine for source water mixing providing the correct testing is carried out before the tds
reading becomes a guide. After such tests yes for freshwater to the tank only, not tank A and B. If you fail to understand that, get ready with a net because I assure you fish will die or get very sick very quickly!
If you get frustrated so easy perhaps trying to advance the base skill set of people with less knowledge than yourself is best left to people of a calmer disposition. Teaching is a special skill.
That's what I think. This pertains only to this thread. No animosity will be received by you from me here or elsewhere. It is supposed to be a community.
