Fresh Water, For What It’s Worth, Reverse Osmosis, Total Dissolved Solids

You’ll be able to start making educated guesses once you’re more familiar with everything. A lot of times, people will write something out the first time and then use abbreviations the rest of the time. I know I do that with Tetra Safe Start. Once I mention it, I refer to it as TSS the rest of the time. I think that’s most common when someone is explaining something. When people are just talking they tend to not write things out, FWIW.

125 - BGK, chanchito cichlid, pictus cats, silver dollars, palmas bichir
125 - cichlids (severums, bolivian rams, chocolate), rainbows ( turquoise, red), loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, tiretrack eel, pearl gouramis, betta
90 - Congo tetras, african knife, upside down cats, spotted ctenopoma, kribensis, delhezzi bichir
2.5 - betta
