Gh booster

I'm new to dry Ferts. Is gh booster mandatory? How do you know if you need it?

Only if you have low GH in your tap water or if you're using RO for water changes. It's used to dose calcium and magnesium in your water column. It's also a source of potassium.

Ah. Well I doubt I need it then. I've never found a number of gh test drops that would make the vial turn.
