I have a 125g with Africans and my filter is an FX5. Everything is in tip top shape except for the water is pretty soft(GH: 6, KH:4) and my ph could be a bit higher(it's at 7.6). I bought some Caribsea Curshed Coral and have read that you can put some in the filter with pantyhose. How much would you recommend and is there a specific brand of pantyhose to use? Does color matter as far as leeching anything bad? I don't want everything the raise quickly and potentially shock the fish.

I put 2 cups worth in 100% pure nylons and placed it in my filter. Is this a sufficient amount and how long until I start to see some changes?

I've never used crushed coral so hopefully some African cichlid people will be along to help.But i would suggest just checking your water (gh/kh, ph) every few days to monitor.
