Yeah, I measured the KH and GH. The temp should be fine since both the tank and the bucket are in the same room and my rili tank doesn't have a heater.

Oh, ok. I'm running out of Seachem potassium. I guess I'll order some powdered potassium then.

Thanks for all the advice.

nevermind. my water changing intentions were cut short when the landlord came home. and there was that awkward moment where he asked me in a very concerned voice from outside my window (ground level for him) whether I was alright because I was struggling with a giant desk lamp at the window to see my tank... (basement apartment, so the windows near the ceiling). Spent the next half an hour taping vellum to the windows >.>
