Unikorn Male Dwarf Honey Gourami died He was my favorite fish. I'm thinking it was old age that caught up with him :/ At least I tried to give him the best life as possible...what a bummer.

Unikorn Did a small WC and brought the TDS down to 391. GH 4 KH 2

I mixed a little tank water with the remineralizing agents, not tap.

thanks somewhatshocked

I am thinking I should do small wc's over as many days it takes to bring it within normal range. Should I skip any days in between?

somewhatshocked You should mix your water with remineralizing agents before adding it to your tank.

What's the KH/GH of your 433 TDS water?

You can lower TDS - if necessary - by doing small water changes, slowly, with water that doesn't have as much mineral content.
