They're still one of the best stores in my state so I want to stay on their good side. They hook me up from time to time. :) what struck me as strange too is that AquaVitro's product that raises KH is just potassium, and although it's from a different source than Premier, and also a bit higher of a dose, it made no sense to me to just add more potassium. I
m happy with where my pH is, I don't really want to bother with trying to change it anyways.
I saw there were quite a few different products that Brightwell sells that seem to change the GH. Am I just looking for something with Calcium, Manganese, Magnesium, and possibly potassium? Or do I need anything more? I thought that's what Equilibrium had. I know mineralize has those ingredients except the potassium.
Should I just hold off to see if any problems arise with the new plants? I can remove the anubias if they're the only ones not working in the tank... or are more problems just inevitable?

My suggestions earlier in this thread to go slow and observe before changin more were made before we knew the GH is <1 dGH as you've now tested. Thus you do need to add the hard minerals somehow. Equilibrium will do this, as will the several products in AV, and the BA line [haven't looked at that yet in detail, but if you are seriously thinking of using BA let me know and I will].
