Tropicalfishkeeping201 Posted August 17, 2022 Share Posted August 17, 2022 (edited) Hello everyone, I'm new to the hobby and I wanted to know if my water parameters are good for starting a shrimp tank and for keeping fish or do I have to make any adjustments? I currently have livebearers and two gouramis. I tested the water parameters using the freshwater Master test kit. I did the off-gassing test (aeration test ) and this is what I got: Sun 8/14/22 Tank water parameters: Ammonia: 0 ppm Nitrite: 0 ppm Nitrate: 0 ppm pH: 6.6 or 6.8 ( It was hard to differentiate the colors if it was 6.6 or 6.8 but looked more like it was 6.6) KH: 35.8 ppm GH: 196.9 ppm Results after testing my tap water ( Tested on 8/14/22) Ph: 7.6 High range ph: 8.4 or 8.8 ( It was hard to differentiate the colors but it looked more like it was 8.8) Kh: 125.3 ppm GH: 161.1 ppm Off-gassing test 24 Hr result (Tested on 8/15/22 (Mon after letting my tap water sit for 24 hrs with an air stone): pH: It was either 7.6 or 7.2 but looked more like it was 7.6 High range: 8.0 KH: 143.2 ppm GH: 179 ppm Water parameters of my tank after doing 50% water change yesterday on Tue (8/15/22): pH: 7.2 KH: 53.7 ppm GH: 143.2 ppm Thank you in advance Edited August 17, 2022 by Tropicalfishkeeping201 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
