 02-09-2013 07:35 AM shift That makes a little more sense. so 4 X20 = 80 * .056 = 4.48 GH and 9*10 - 90*.056 = 5.04 KH Those numbers seem make a little more sense. Than you for explaining that! 02-09-2013 07:22 AM Darkblade48 Quote: Originally Posted by shift View Post Found it! http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/sh...ad.php?t=61148 so if i multiply it by .56 GH = 44.8 KH = 50.4 No do those numbers sound right? If so its off the charts for shrimp You multiply by 0.056; you are off by an order of magnitude. To convert from German degrees to mg/L (ppm), multiply by 17.8. To go the other way, divide by 17.8 (or multiply by the inverse, which is 0.056). Also, regarding your kH, I am unsure how you managed to measure 0.9 of a drop, so I would interpret your results with caution. 02-09-2013 06:41 AM shift Found it! http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/sh...ad.php?t=61148 so if i multiply it by .56 GH = 44.8 KH = 50.4 No do those numbers sound right? If so its off the charts for shrimp 02-09-2013 06:33 AM shift Its a hagen/nutrifin test kit. Says 61-100 is slightly hard. My test said 80 (by counting drops) Its still not making much sense to me (atleast versus any of the results i normal see posted.) 02-09-2013 06:28 AM acitydweller sort of high but depends on what the mfg states. also are these results measured in PPM or by another? 02-09-2013 06:25 AM shift GH and KH and shrimp? So today i tested GH and KH. GH said to multiple the # of drops by 20.. 4 drops = 80 KH said multiple # of drops by 10. .9 drops = 90 When i'm looking at specs for shrimp they say GH 1-4.. is this drops? or an excessively low GH? Same goes for KH. specs are low (which would seem more like drops, not results?) Am i looking at this the right way?
