Well I've been doing alot of research and have decided to leave the GH alone in both tanks I may put some RObwater in my planted to drop it to about 8. But in gonna leave it alone for my cichlid tank. As far as the alkalinity goes ice started dosing baking soda today to see what it does. Just a little at a time. I also understand I'm gonna have to dose the new water prior to water changes. I'm hoping for an alkalinity of 5 for my planted and 12 for my Africans. All of the fish at my local fish store are accustomed to this water except a few species. I plan on keeping either guppies danios or small tetras in my planted as well as shrimp and otocinclus
