To Boost GH or not?


Right now my GH is at 4 after a 50% water change. I was having issues with a high GH recently but finally got it down to 4d Gh. I also just started EI dosing. Should i hold off this week with the GH booster? It's 3:3:1 K2SO4:CaSO4:MgSO4. Being that my GH is at 4, does this mean i have enough Ca and Mg in my tank already? And does anyone know how much of this booster would raise a 55gal 1d Gh? or 100gal if thats easier?

GH can be either Ca or Mg or both. only way to find out is what is your Ca and Mg levels. GH of 4 is good enough though but we dont know how much ca or mg you have.
