Julia Posted February 26, 2022 Share Posted February 26, 2022 Hi, my softened water is testing at 18 degrees KH 3 degrees GH 8.0-8.2 PH the 20 gall has shrimp and plants and all are doing wonderfully and reproducing like crazy. Its a happy forest. the 40 gall has 2 one year old common goldfish ( someone w a pond will take them when they are bigger my kid won them at a fair with his grandma). In this tank simple vallisneria is at a standstill and algae is a bother. The crypt is covered in algae and the fish understandably constantly try to uproot it. I can accept their goldfishness. Both have been running for 6-12 months. i learned years ago to add kent marine calcium so that the shrimp could molt properly. Question is can I add seachem equilibrium to fix GH issue? Unsoftened water would be 14 degrees KH and 23 degrees Gh. i can bypass the softened water but i would need to run a long hose and the water would be freezing and its would be like a 30 gallon ordeal and ugh. Just no. Please no. There must be a ton of people who had this issue so i thought ide finally ask.. leave it alone? seachem equilibrium? Thought?
