To answer your original question: Presumably you have live plants, so how are they doing now? And what fish are in the tank?
Also, since calcium and magnesium, which are the principal minerals determining hardness, will be used by plants between water changes, I would test the GH just prior to the next water change. This will represent its lowest level, which is what you really want to know in this situation. The water change will bring in fresh water with calcium and magnesium.
Nothing spectacular with the plants. Most are just maintaining. Very little growth. Jungle vals are browning but some new growth. Ther'es some stem plants i forgot the name to is close to dead. I got some wisteria and some other plant bending over.
Fishes are neon tetras, blue rams, angelfish, honey gouramis, corys, few shrimps, rummy nose tetras.
That reading is a day before a water change.
