So I got my ph down to 6.4 gh5 kh5 so far all is good I've had to use acid regulator to lower ph because RO wasn't enough at 10:1 tap water. So I use enough acid regulator and neutral regulator to stabilize the ph at a low 6.4 only down fall is my TDS readings are high now along with my phosphates that have doubled no algae prob or nothing yet nock on wood doing daily water changes
