Wouldn't Aquasoil solve all his problems? Since we know he/she (sorry) has a pretty high pH for CRS, it would buffer it to ideal conditions. Not to jack the thread, but Aquasoil does make the gH/kH "ideal" for CRS right? Never really found out, just read it lowers "hardness"

It technically can, but nothing corrects water like RO remineralized.
