How to raise KH?

I have used salty shrimp gh+ to add gh to my RO water. When you guys need to raise KH, what product do you use?

I have very hard water, but have started using the aquavitro K + carbonate. It's potassium bicarb I think in liquid form. It seems to have put some vals in high gear. Some raw stuff might be handy for everyone.

The Salty Shrimp GH/KH booster raises the KH .5 for every 1 increase in GH.

I use the Salty Shrimp GH/KH and I love the stuff.

You can use Baking soda to raise KH.

18g (Red Cherry Neo Shrimp | Malawa Shrimp)
7.5g (Yellow Neo Shrimp)
3.2g (Pumpkin Neo Shrimp)
2g (Snails)
11.4g (new home soon for the Pumpkin Neos)
