    I have two cycled fluval spec III each with a female betta. I use betta spa (1ml per gallon) in both tanks. My water is hard.
    My normal parameters from API liquid kits are
    Ammonia 0 ppm
    Nitrite 0 ppm
    Nitrate 5-15 ppm
    Ph 7.8
    Gh 240 ppm
    Kh 240 ppm
    Should I mess with my Ph/Gh/Kh values or leave it. I normally run my filters carbonless. Should I up my usage of betta spa or get water softener pillows or my water change with 1/2 distilled water and 1/2 tap water?

    There is no need to mess with it

    Id add a small piece of bogwood test after week and do nothing else ph/kh/gh wise.
    The ph will come down slightly as will kh. Otherwise i think you'l be fine with those parameters
