Yeah, GH KH in the 20s with a PH of 9 out of the tap.
No, I do not currently have c02 injection but I am looking into it for this reason, and for the obvious one (plants growth)
I do understand most anything can live in this without much trouble, but at a cost.
my oscar for instance, a very hardy fish, but his natural habitat would be soft water with a moderatly low Ph. He does fine really, but his colors are very dull, and his growth is very slow for an oscar. The only thing I can attribute this too is the water parameters, seeing as he has an excellent diet with color enhancing foods, stable foods, ect. I was hoping with RO water and a stabilized lower Ph.
Now that I understand how the Ph controller works in planted/freshwater environment, how would one work in a saltwater environment , were there is no C02 injection?
Keep the convo goin!
