  1. So I just did a water change 10% and only mixed the fresh ro water to a gh of 4 which was a tds of 75. Now my tds in the tank is 145 and the gh is 6. My plan now is to do another water change in 5-7 days with the same gh of 4 and I just ordered some tds up to keep the tds at 135-140. Unless some one has a better idea or thinks this is the wrong thing to do. I figure it is going to take a while to slowly bring the gh back in check. Chris
  2. I was doing my water change and I was testing my RO water after remineralizing with salty bees gh+ to a tds of 130. I decided to test that gh+ and it was at 8. I decided to test my tank because I lost 1 shrimp recently and the tanks gh+ has skyrocketed to7.5 a 8. Curious if this has happened to some one else and how do I fix it so the gh stays at 5ish. Thanks in advance. chris

    Cycling new tank

    I am cycling a new 10 gallon aquarium with ada Amazonia light, using a Hamburg Matten filter with plants already planted including Buce, scarlet temple plant, subwassertang, and 2 other species. I started off using the fishless cycle, but since week 4 now is week6 my ammonia has been stuck at 0.25 ppm. I have been doing frequent water changes using half ro half tap water. I have cholla wood in there along with katapa leaves alder cones and montmorelinite rocks and tourmaline balls. Is this normal for ada soil to take this long and I just need to be patient or do I need to try something else. I added a few endlers last week to see if that would help but no. Any advice welcome, thanks in advance! Chris ph 6.3 kh 0 gh 5-6 tds 147 nitrite 0 ammonia 0.25 nitrate 0-5 temp 72
