I've looked around a bit more on different threads and realize my water isn't so different from others. I've just got to recognize it is hard water and to get the correct fish - no discus for me then.

Thanks for everyone's help and suggestions I've learnt a lot all ready and my water is doing fine. I'll keep testing it and come back if I have more questions.

P.S. the high pH kit can wait I'll get the lfs to test it.

What do you use for the ammonia nitrite nitrate tests? The API master test kit comes with those and both the low and high range pH test. Then the API KH/GH test is standalone.

I use the API test kits, but I have been buying them piecemeal as I never thought I'd need them all. I first bought the Ammonia and Nitrite kits a while back when my fish would 'mysteriously' die over night - when I saw the test turn red I knew the reason :(

I don't think my wife will let me go get the high pH kit yet as I always come back from the store with 3 or 4 extra goodies that caught my eye. But I may just happen to be passing the store this weekend...

Especially when you're a nun.

(my aunt was a nun and would have appreciated that joke.)
