    Here are my water parameters:
    Ph 6.8
    kh 6
    gh 18

    I just dosed the tank with Seachem Flourish....can this be it? My tank is only a week old and my tap only produces 4gH. Can it be the fertilizers or the eco-complete?

    Anything to worry about if I only have plants in this tank?

    Thanks,
    Jersey

    Sounds like the EC.

    Does EC always affect GH or are you suggesting it could be the bad batch that was out there awhile ago?

    From what I have read using the search it says that it will up my GH for the first 6 months.

    That's another reason to spend the extra cash for it - automatic GH incrementation.

    Don't forget to dose those nutrients.
