Is it possible to have a positive GH reading (Say 4-8dKH range) and still be limited on either calcium or magnesium? Do another minerals contribute to a GH reading? How foolproof are the GH test kits... i.e. API. I usually dbl the sample size to get to .5 accuracy.

Put another way, do both Ca and Mg have to be present to show a reading? or can just one drive the dKH up on the test.

Thanks

Yes, hence the suggestion of adding GH Booster to raise your GH up 1-2 degrees.
To guarantee you don't lack either one.

You can try it yourself, put MgSO4 or CaSO4 to distilled water and measure.

GH is the sum of Ca and Mg. So, you can have only Ca but not enough Mg, yet GH will be high
Often, tap water is poor in Mg and GH is mainly Ca in it
