    What Am I Missing?

    Hi,

    I see no reason to add any Sera mineral salt. :) Are you using RO water? If so how are you getting to high general and Carbonate hardness? :confused:

    GH and KH of 10 are what they are, fine, some might wish to lower them, but I see no reason.

    The Seachem Equilibrium accounts for about .33-dGH or about 5 or 6-ppm.

    Aside from my mind, what am I missing something?

    Of all the things I have had and lost it is my mind I miss the most. :eek:

    Hi Biolante,

    Everything is fine and dandy! :)

    I wish to try the sera instead of the seachem for a while, as it has been given to me as a gift.

    I do use RO water!

    I also add 14ml of my Mgso4 solution daily as part of my dosing schedule It is made as follows, 95g mgso4 to 500ml ro water.

    Sorry it took me so long to reply!

    All it says on the label is " 5g for each 100ltr R/O water results in a carbonate hardness of 0.6dH. Contains important trace elements."

    As shown in the pic above the label shows Calcium, Magnessium and Potassium

    GH Booster In Terms Of KH?

    Hi,

    Sounds like a GH booster to me. :gw

    Though it measures itself in terms of dKH rather than dGH. :confused:

    For each 100-liters add 5 grams for each .6 dKH you want. :)

    Seems odd, but many say that of me so... :eek:

    I'd add maybe 1/2 teaspoon of GH booster after the water change
