    Might be a stupid question but do you have fish? Lol only my experience says that some fishes will die if the gh/kh is too high so a test wouldn't do any harm. If it's naturally mid range you probably don't need to do it often

    Just a few tetra right now , but plan on a few shrimp in the future.

    So, kH is what keeps your pH from crashing, gH tells you how high the amount of dissolved minerals. While good for plants, I use the kH specifically for my fish...

    Gotcha thank you Jocelyn. The kit I seen was a combo gh/kh, I already have a basic water test kit so looks like I should get that one too. Thank you!
