The store used the test master kit right in front of me and I checked each thing along with them, only thing that was out of wack was the ph. As for the hardness I was informed that my local tap water has high hardness and ph. I think the tank has enough oxygen as well or else all the fish would be near the top gasping for air, and their not.
As far as lowering the ph I read that live plants can help lower ph naturally, I was also looking for any other techniques maybe to ph down alittle further. If I lose this gourami I will not get another, I guess I'll have to consider a different tankmate for my tetra and Glofish.
