Iím starting a new thread because I donít want to hijack someone elseís.
Iíve been using NilocG gh booster and K2CO3 to raise the gh/kh of ro water. I use a 5 gallon bucket filled with ro, mix in 6.5 grams of gh booster and 2.3 grams of K2CO3 then let it sit with the lid on for several days. When I tested the water the ph was 8.8+. I tested the tank I put the water in and the ph is ~7.6. Iím wondering if leaving the lid on my water change bucket kept the ph up somehow.
Iím going to try running an air stone in my mixed water for a while to see what happens.
Aerating the water seems to help, getting about 7.5 ph after a few hours of the air stone.
