Tiger Tank...official start (now with shrimp)
Tank is painted...
The filter has been constructed...
Canister is waiting...
Lava rock is seeding...
And substrate is ready...
My RO/DI is up and running and I ran some tests on my water supply. Out of the tap I am getting:
GH 6 or 7
Out of the RO/DI:
Both KH and GH took one drop to change color (API test kit) so that figures in to be around 0 for the actual values.
So now let me just check to make sure this is correct. I have Kent's RO Right. I take my RO water, add RO Right until I get back to a GH of 4-5. That's it? KH and TDS will just fall into line? Then after that, I can use my TDS to know what my clean water reading is and use that for future mixing of RO water for WC's or other tank fills?
