new tank, well water and first water test...
I am setting up a new 90g show tank. Trying to research everything and do it right, auto co2, AH lighting, eheim etc. With my co2 system came some basic test kits. So last night I gave them a whirl, I have planned to drive inot the big city and have the water tested correctly, but this is the first shot. Living in the country we have well water.
PH - dark blue 7.6 (it could be higher because this is the darkest blue shade on the test kit, is this correct assumption?)
KH - fifteen drops immediately changed color, so its way off my charts,
GH - 10 drops changed color, 179
I am new to fresh water so any suggestions would help, we do have iron staining on our shower, sink and toilet, is this bad? Thanks Debby
