    I have a separate GH/KH kit (API) The GH test never showed an Orange color that the directions said it should start out as after the first drop. The first drop turned it a very faint green. The KH test turned very Blue and didn't turn Yellow until the 19th drop of reagent. Off the scale. The pH settles down to 8.4 - 8.6 after a day or so. I have a TDS meter and total dissolved solids measure 566. I know our water has a lot of sediment in it, we...

    I do use Prime. I won't use anything else. Learned the value of it years ago.

    It's broken down and the inhabitants are in their new home now. Going to sell it. Someone who knows how to polish out scratches could have a decent tank. It would also make a good growout tank. - - - Updated - - - Thank you

    Is your Emperor 400 noisy at all? I don't mean the water returning to the tank, but more like motor noise?

    I don't think the lids/tops would hinder that LED light getting to the bottom of an 18"H tank. Just be sure to keep them clean and free of water stains and you should be good to go.

    You have ammonia and nitrite in your tap water? I think I may have ammonia in mine. Every time I test my water I get an ammonia reading of 0.25ppm. No nitrite and usually 5ppm nitrate. Tank was seeded with sponge squeezings and Dr. Tim's one-and-only, has been up for about 3 months now. I'm wondering if it's just a bum API test kit I got. lol

    You're welcome Vildayyan. I'm sure you probably know this but I forgot to mention it, if you try the boil and quench method, be sure to dechlorinate both the hot and cold water.

    I do have a couple of questions actually.. I see you're in Burly, I'm over in Lillian. Are you on Bethesda or JCSUD? Do you have liquid rocks coming out of your tap too? My water comes out of the tap at a ph of 9.6. Just curious. Do you keep any mbuna?

    If you have a pot large enough, you can boil it. You'll want to boil it for about 15 minutes then quench it in cold water. (go from boiling to cold immediately) You might have to do this 3-4 times. Tank looks awesome!
