Few questions about your wonderful products.
First let me say sorry for the winded thread. I have a 75 gallon Malawi tank, and very hard and alkaline water from my tap 7.6 PH or so not sure about GH or KH.
Alright my first question is about the Cichlid Lake Salt. After adding the directed amount of salt to my tank I tested PH GH and KH and found my GH to be through the roof just over 500ppm is this going to be a problem for my fish?
Second question is a 3 parter about the Malawi/Victoria Buffer. Does this product effect GH or KH in any way? If not how can I raise my KH because it's under the recommended 200-400ppm for African cichlids, about 125ppm. Should I even worry about my KH? Also at this point let me say that I've only added one teaspoon instead of the directed 4 teaspoons because I currently have fish in the tank and did not want to shock them with a sudden PH change. My tank PH went from 7.6 to 7.8, and my goal is to slowly get to 8.0 to 8.2.
Alright last but not least a quick 2 part question about Purigen. I plan to use 2 100ml bags of this amazing media in my Rena Filstar XP3 Filter just above the biological media and Bio-Zorb. Will the Purigen have problems with the Bio-Zorb, which is basicly activated carbon with some resins? Also when I go to regenerate the Purigen will I be able to just use the Malawi/Victoria Buffer, or do I have to use the Neutral Regulator?
Thank you for reading my post and all the great products that you make. Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.
