  • General hardness question

    So, I did a GH and KH test. The GH ended up using 21 drops, and the KH 7. I did both tests twice with the same results. Does the GH seem a bit high? The PH looked to be 7.4-7.6 Oh yeah, we've moved since I last posted . Everything is new, now. Unfortunately...

    Just means your water is very hard and loaded with calcium and/or magnesium. When obtaining new fish you may need to acclimate if they are coming out of soft water; and may have issues with attempts to breed species that are found in very soft water. But wouldn't stop you.

      yup, hard water. You could mess with it, but honestly if you are into this for just a regular tank then I wouldnt worry about it at all. You will need to watch your acclimations as catsma_97504 mentioned and breeding might take a bit more work than usual thou not impossible.
