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. :)
