60 Gallon Memorial Tank
I am having some trouble figuring our water chemistry. The PH is perfect, the ammonia, nitrates, and nitrites are at 0, the KH is within limits, but the GH is really low. I know that if I want to put in African Cichlids the GH should be between 200-400 ppm. It is currently at 30. I know cichlid salts will increase it but will it up my PH. My PH is within limits but it is on the high side and I want it to stay stable. I did some research and found something called a mineral shell that will balance on its own. Anyone use these? I also was wondering about CO2. What is a good started system?
