So what i wonder and kinda need to know is why is that one tank registering as super soft water? I used to keep fw shrimp and guppies in there but recently sold off the rest of my shrimp and only 1 guppy remains. I want to stock the tank soon and its well planted. In fact far more then any other tank. Im just wondering before i consider stock for this tank what could cause 1 out of nearly 10 tanks to have such different results... Im just confused now
Obviously something is different in that one tank.
One you know what that would be then that would be the answer.
With it being well planted what else is different. circulation, substrate, what types of plants, amount of water changes. etc etc etc.
If there is not livestock in the tank I would be tempted to turn off all circulation, stop all water changes, and see what happens to ph and kh.
Sorry I couldn't help.
