After much frustration, I’m switching to R/O (no peat anywhere but what got loose in the tank).
GH: 160mg/L = 9dH
KH: 80mg/L = 4.5 dH
Tank levels are FAR higher!! Proceeding with a “flush” of the tank’s water column, probably with R/O, but carefully as to make changes slowly.
I’ve drained probably about 9 gallons of water, and now I’m replacing it with almost all R/O water… The pH won’t crash… even 1/3 of the hardness is still higher than tap LOL.
Also added a minute amount of Flourish purchased today.
ACTUALLY getting Java Ferns’ roots planted now due to planting/pruning tool!

KH: 7.8 dH (13-14 drops)
GH: 15.7 dH (14 drops)
Removed maybe 1-2 gallons, replaced with 1-2gal RO and 1-1.5gal tap.
CO2 is also back up, after an outage of 2 or so days.
and yes, I know not to plant javas but I heard that as long as the rhizome is exposed it's ok?
