Gh extremely high!!!!
I just tested my gh kh and ph and nitrates out of curiosity.
My gh tested at 11
It took 11 drops to go from orange to green. This is bad
Kh is one
Nitrates is 0
And my ph is quite high still. Around 7-7.2
For me this is a lot higher than I want it. I like to keep it around 6.4
I have neos and carids
CBS and crs
And a few blonde orange eye tigers
My tds is solid at 200
What's in the tank is a manzanita branch
Ceramic moss plates
I know the though stone raises ph, but does it also raise gh?
I have taken half of it out already.
I use or water only remineralized with salty shrimp mineral plus
And I do weekly top offs and wc every two weeks.
Filter media is only bio media and sponges and I run a sponge winter in the tank as well.
Any ideas what's going on here and how to fix it, I have shrimp breeding in this water and also shrimplets that I'm worried about, shrimplets include crs CBS and rcs.
must....have.....more....moss n shrimp!!!!!!!!!!
