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

    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 won't even drink it. My mbuna don't seem to mind it though, they seem to be thriving. I have several holding females atm. Guess I'll just keep on keepin' on. Thanks for the welcome Gypsi!

    I'm not familiar with the liquid tests, I keep 5 in 1 test strips around, what is the faint green on GH?
    Gee, I get a sig file?
