I do a 10 to 20 percent water change a week, which worked great when I lived where there was soft water. My ph is 6.2 I think, I've forgotten the exact number for the alkalinity but because the ph is so low, its at its lowest "acidic" level, the nitrates and nitrites are around .20,so far ammonia is at 0. I am treating it with amquel plus and API proper ph 7.0(this product says any hardness over 100 will effect the ph, which in turn effects the alkalinity, and so on.)
I haven't done anything different or added anything different than normal, but I recently moved in with my grandparents, and I guess they just have really hard water, whereas my water from my old house was only at 25.
