    Hi guys,
    Does laterite in the first layer of gravel effect/change the hardness level of water. Water out my tap is about 6-7 degrees GH, and I want it to stay there when I set up the aquarium.
    Also, does any one have advice on root tablets and if they will increase hardness?

    Ok great thanks! I dont mind to much about acidity, im putting Bolivian butterflys in there though so just need a stable pH. Reading that other post I should be fine with laterite. Thanks fot your help
