My water is crystal clear. It is 8:13 now. I will keep a close eye on them. I'm not sure what to do about finding out the gh and kh. Any suggestions? I have kept all of the fish I bought tonight in the past and the did well.
We need the numbers, otherwise we are guessing. But assuming the previous number of 180ppm you posted is close, that is 10 dGH. What is your pH (tap water), if you have the pH test? Shake a small jar of tap water thoroughly before testing for pH, to drive out the CO2 for a more accurate pH test.
