KH Zero GH 4 Hightech New tank
Hey all, I'm sure this question has been asked a multitude of times but for clarity sake I must ask once more. I have read a dozen different posts about what KH and GH does and I have a grasp on its importance but wondering if i really need to alter it. I have read yes, I have read no.
My main concerns are knowing what my Co2 is, fish health and watching out for the so called pH crash (read isn't even really a worry)
I have been checking my ph from lights on (7pH) and toward the end of the day (6.2pH) so here is my '.8-1 point drop' but I worry because of the large lack of kH.
IF I do need to up my kH what should i use, baking soda or is there something more appropriate?
-24/7 Planted+ Light
-2213 ehiem canister filter with surface skimmer and lily pipe.
-Drop checker (sits at a greenish blue through out the day, i know i know throw it out ^_^)
-3 weeks old still cycling (FISHLESS)
-substrate is 3 fold, eco complete on bottom, fluval stratum middle and capped with seachem flourite
-malaysian driftwood multiple pieces

kH 0 (checked 3 times both tank and tap water)
