Hey all, I just got my GH/KH test kit in the mail today. API liquid (of course). Tested my 10 gal. that has Neons, Pygmy Corys, and one Mystery snail in it. the tank tested at 21 for GH, 17 for KH. HARD in other words. I then tested my tap water, 24 for GH, 17 for KH. Guess the one piece of driftwood is having some minimal effect. The inhabitants all seem to be doing fine. My pH is consistently 8.2 to 8.4. I've always been interested in African Cichlids, guess I have the water for them to feel right at home. I'm assuming conventional wisdom says leave well enough alone and not try to alter things. Anyone disagree?
