Got all the RO water I needed to do a 90% WC.
gH and kH are at 1 (success!). and the TDS was measured at 44.
hopefully when I re-mineralize the tank water the gH will hit 4-6 and get a TDS of around 80-100 to match the "ideal parameters" of http://www.shrimpkeeping.com/
Also got my cholla wood today and letting it float around at the surface of my tank until it sinks (:
