I just bought an API GH
test kit. For the GH
I got 7 drops which says it equals 125.3 and for the KH
I got a 10 which equals 179.
I have Blue Botia, Blood Parrots an Algae eater and a juvenile Bichir. From what I can gather from the fish range recommendations it looks like I need to lower both these numbers?
I was just wondering what GH
numbers I should aim for? The instructions say I can do partial water changes to get the KH
down. It also said to used deionized water to lower the GH
. Is there any way to deionize the water naturally when you fill big tanks. Like is there some kind of water filter I could add directly to the house tap?
Since it was API they were really pushing their products. Such as the PH up and down and the water softener pillow. Iíve heard these make for unstable water chemistry in the future? Didnít know if this was safe to use or not.
