First off, a Sera test kit is on the way but won't arrive until Friday.
Second, my numbers come from the water district, not test strips.
Okay, I've been advised that my 60ppm GH, 50 ppm KH water isn't hard enough for the planned shrimp colony, so I'm adding enough GH Booster according to the directions for a 3 dGH increase. It's a 7.5g tank, so I added ~1 tsp last week for the initial dose; the result was a noticeably chalky looking tank all week. For today's 20 % WC, I added a dash and a smidgen of GH Booster (1/32 and 1/64 tsp) with the same results.
If the Sera test confirms the values are correct, is this the new normal? It doesn't look good at all.
Getting back to the hobby and up to speed.
