Need help with incredibly high KH and PH
I'm planing on setting up a 20g long planted tank. I have a 5 gallon tank with a couple of tetras (I know, it's bad) Today I decided to test my KH and GH out of curiosity and got readings of:
KH: 300+ ppm
I'm new to the idea of planted tanks but I'm pretty sure plants will not survive these parameters, let alone most fish. I do know that my water system runs from a well and is on a salt filtration system. I believe that this is where my problem lies.
My question is, how can I lower my KH to lower pH? Any and all suggestions/theories/ideas are welcomed.
Thanks in advance!
