I received my test kit today and test the KH and gh of my water. Both are very high just as I suspected. My KH is 12 dh or 214.8 ppm, and my GH was 14 dh or 250.6 ppm. That will be almost perfect when I set up my cichlid tank this summer. However, for my community tank it is much too high and I ordered an RO system. I can't wait for it to get here! With the RO system, I hope to get the pH down to around 7.2 - 7.4 range. All that I have read on it suggests that I can achieve that if I mix tap water with the RO water. I just have to work out the right ratio. I don't have any fish yet, so I should be able to test and get the right ratio. Any other suggestions would be appreciated.
