Best way to lower KH

Recommended Posts

Setting up a TB tank and want to prep my parameters right. What is the best way to lower the KH in your experience?

Current params

PH 7.3

TDS 180

KH 4

GH 6

I want to get the KH to zero and the PH to 6 for a nice healthy environment for TBs.

I tried couple things,


adding HCl,

adding Peat Moss


but overtime it bounces back to 7.3.


I have ADA Amozonia as substrate with RO water, adjust GH to 5 before water change.


I almost gave up, my CRS still doing well in pH7.3
