GH is General Hardless. So it tests hard/soft. Kh tests the amount of Calcium Carbonate in your water. This is what directly affects your pH.

You're going to need to add a source of ammonia to cycle your tank. Either pure liquid ammonia or fish food. Liquid ammonia is much easier to achieve the desired amount which is 3-4ppm. You won't do any water changes until your tank processes 3-4ppm of ammonia in 24 hours, then you will do a WC to bring nitrates down, redosing the ammonia back to 3-4ppm to double check. You can then begin stocking your tank.

Okay. Cool. Looks like i'm all set. Just wanna say thank you to everyone that commented or offered an opinion or suggestion on my post. You guys have been great and have taught me a whole lot. I'll finally let this post die since you guys are probably sick and tired of my questions. Lol. Again big thank you. Hope to have some pics soon of my tank once its up and running. Meanwhile I will be hanging around learn some more from you guys.
