Kh, Gh, PH and CO2
Hi everyone I’m fairly new to the planted aspect of aquariums and recently set up a 120 gallon planted tank. I’m a little worried my kh and CO2 might be a little low for a planted tank. My water parameters are
Based on those measurements with the research I’ve done my CO2 is low. My plants are showing a steady sign of growth however I am not 100% sure I am correct and that is what brings me here. Out of my tap the water parameters are
Should I worry about trying to raise my kh, and if so how should I go about doing that? I was planning on eventually getting a 5 pound CO2 canister and adding CO2 with a diffuser to the tank. When I do that will that help me? Also is my gh in a good range? I read 5°-8° is fine but wasn’t sure if I should raise it a degree or two with seachem equilibrium. And is my PH in an acceptable range or should I try to lower it a little bit. Any help will be greatly appreciated thank you.
