GH up products and TDS

Hey Guys,

I was wondering if it would be helpful to start a list of different GH up products (BW, mosura, shirakura, salty shrimp, etc.) and list GHs values with their respective TDS numbers. I've been looking, since I just realized my GH test kit was crap and I've had a hard time finding anything.

For example, using BW GH up you get this GH with this TDS.
Using mosura mineral plus you get this GH with this TDS.

I am assuming the use of RO water with a very close to 0 TDS and GH to start out with.

tap water works well
mosura tds up.
i think it would hard to calculate that as people have different water thst will be affected differently.
even ro water from one place will react different from another source.

if it matters i use about 5 scopps of mosura ph up to raise my ph from 6 - 6.5

For my CRS I use pure RO with half dose of Shirakura Liquid Mineral.

My KH is 2 and my GH is 6

Dont bother with PH testing as 'it is what it is'
