Hard Water Blues
KH 143.2 ppm (8 drops with the API test)
GH 196.9 ppm (11 drops with the API test)
Is this water even suitable to keep fish in? I have a 20L that I was hoping to make into a low-light, no fuss, no muss, planted, community tank for my toddler to enjoy. I was considering Neon Tetras, a Betta, and some sort of clean-up crew for the bottom. Am I out of luck?
The tank isn't cycled as of yet, I'm still working on gathering things for the hardscape, as well as plants.
Bump: Adding that I really do not want to mess with trying to alter the water parameters. Pre-Kids sure. But with a toddler to look after, making sure there are not whiplashes in water parameters is not on my list of fun things to do.
Unless someone out there can clue me in on a super easy/foolproof/mommy brain method of keeping the prams consistent.
