    35 Grams

    Hi Hani,

    35 grams of Grumpy's GH Booster should add a about 2 dGH to 70 or so gallons of water. :)

    I hope this helps. :cool:

    I Do Not Produce Grumpy's GH Booster, It Is What It Is.

    Hi Hani,

    [FONT=&quot]Without regard to the starting general hardness, i[/FONT]f you wish to raise the general hardness of 70 gallons water by 2 dGH using Grumpy’s GH Booster you will need approximately 35 grams, you probably could get away with a couple of grams less. Heavily planted and particularly if you keep gastropods, you may need a little more. Fewer plants and fewer gastropods less may be required. :)

    I use a GH Booster at each water change. :gw

    Generally, I think it is a good idea to raise general hardness a degree or two, with your water one or two degrees puts you in what many consider the “sweet spot” for planted tanks.

    Your question was (sic) “how can i make a solution to add with wc to raise the gh 2 degrees for 75 g tank?” The approximate answer is 35 grams. :)

    I add about 2 teaspoons 1x a week for GH to a tank this size, more than enough.

    About 5 Grams Per Teaspoon

    Hi Hani,

    [Additional Disclaimer]

    • I have not and do not use Grumpy’s GH Booster.

    Two teaspoons of Grumpy’s GH Booster is around ten grams. :)

    Many who use Grumpy’s use it for the other things they get, it seems roughly equivalent to SeaChem Equilibrium. :)
