Duff0712 Posted October 17, 2015 Report Share Posted October 17, 2015 I have a TB tank. I figure a GH of ~5 would be perfect. How much do I need to put into a 5g bucket of rodi water to get 5GH and what would TDS read as? I ask because I have been reading around and I am getting a lot of different responses for questions I keep coming up with. I don't mind if that happens here, but I just want healthy shrimp haha. I have read my API GH kit is +2 off and if I was previously reading a GH of 6 then my GH would have been perfect at 4-5, but I've been dosing differently now until I get a GH of 3-4 which would be supposedly be 2. I don't want to underdose but I don't want to be overdosing either. I've been told not to worry about TDS, but I've seen others reply that TDS at or under 100 can be bad for TBs? As of now my tank is sitting at a TDS of 100 and my API test reads 5GH (which could be 2-3GH). I am hoping to figure out what the best TDS and KH to go for is. I'm pretty much freaking myself out that my TDS and GH is too low Thanks in advance. -Duffy Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
