That's where my question came in - both are not high in my tanks. My GH is pretty low low (4), while KH is very high (19). I've had good luck with a lot of fish that are softer water fish (rams, angels, neons, other tetras, etc), which just got me to wondering if I was giving too much weight to the KH. My ram supplier had said something to that effect, but when I started looking online, I just wasn't really finding an answer either way.
I do keep shrimp, but only neos, amanos, and vampire shrimp. I haven't and won't try crystals or anything of that sort in my water. The answer to this question won't change what I do - I already don't make any attempts to alter my water and I pretty well am able to keep all of the fish I want to keep. Was just curious from a personal knowledge standpoint if there was a difference in how the two reading affect the inhabitants of the tank.
