    Add GH and KH and you'll be set.

      Sorry, I forgot to mention I have those as well.

      Do I need a calcium test?

        No, you do not need one. That is what the KH Test Kit is for; Carbonate Hardness. It measures the amount of Calcium Carbonate.

        GH measures all minerals including Calcium and Magnesium.

          I would say your good. Might want to just make sure that you have low and high pH if you are doing co2 injection and your normal pH is over 7.6
