I know out of the tap water my water is 2dgh/kh
ph is around 7... I don't remember whether it drops or raises after it sits for a while
I usually supplement my inverts with that mont... somethingorrather calcium clay for proper moults and proper shell development.

*Izzy, Sorry I totally missed ur Q.
I cover mine with a saran wrap XD

AH, i keep testing just incase something goes horribly wrong so I can catch it. I get 0's on my tests as well, but you never know. better safe than sorry.

It was due to topping off the water instead of changing it (sounds familiar?) and now it sits at 9dGH with regular water changes. I'm not sure how the peat would offset this evaporative increase in hardness offhand though.... needs some thought unless someone knows?

Actually that was my kh. 19+ degrees. GH was in the 35-40 degree range.

(after years of operation)

With peat moss in the substrate kH stayed at 4 degrees and gh at 9 degrees for 2-3 years or so.

pH in both cases was 8.4-8.8 api high range test kit.

i feel like I'm going to be rich soon if you keep posting here ;)
As ecocomplete and whatever else seems to increase hardness, my water is pribably harder. At certain times I can really tell when the water's too soft, All my snails refuse to come out of their shells. lol.

is there any way to not have atleast one side of glass in a immersed setup not be all foggy and moist? been thinking of trying one but I don't like the condensation all over.

do you just deal with the moisture or are you able to get a clear viewing side?

if I want to see it, I get a soft tissue and wipe the moisture off. lol
So I guess I just deal with it.


my favourite thing about the tank is the moss covered DW XD It's so soffftt!

The moisture is so high that the condensation would still happen, it would just bead and run rather than fog.
