    Hi Tom
    Here in Sydney the KH seems pretty low at the moment approx 1kh. Should I increase the KH to 3 or so?
    Am doing full EI on 40g tank (also add half tsp GH booster/wc) and all seems well just not sure of KH being so low...
    cheers

    I'd leave it. You can if you wish, but I did quite well with a KH of 1 and GH of 2.
    It can make the measurement of CO23 tough, but you can still test to 1 degree.

    Regards,

    Hi Tom
    Does it matter if the GH is around 5 or 6 with the KH of 1?
    Cheers
    Chris

    Nope, that's actually pretty good.
