So I just checked my KH & GH. My KH is 53.7-71.6 & my GH is 125.3-143.2. Is this good or bad? I really have no idea what these mean but wanted to check and see what my levels were

Hey Valerie,

Excellent question! KH is your carbonate hardness and factors into your total alkalynity. GH is your total hardness and is relavent to your calcium or magnezium in your tank.

High/Low is all a subjective depending on what fish you have.

Here is a good article on it:
