pH 7.0 - 7.1
kh 6dkh
gh 6dgh
no3 10 -20 ppm

So far my kh is holding at 6, but I think needs to be higher. If I have to dose baking soda every week, is there anything wrong with that?

I dose baking soda every week with my ARLC tank's water change and have had no problems at all, and I dose a lot - 2-3 tablespoons per water change. If you don't mind doing it I don't think it should be a problem
