    Water kh and gh

    Ok I just tested my kh of my tap water turned yellow by three drops but my gh is of chart .
    I donít remember it being that hard before think my test kit is to old Or something has changed .
    Guess I will get a new test kit see if thatís problem .
    Would Like to find out for sure before I add more angles .I have just one and he seems fine

    no nitrates .ph 7.6
    any one keep angels in hard water .?

    PH of 7.6 is not that hard for angelfish.If your using tap water and if you need a more accurate ph reading.Age a bucket of water for 24 hours then do a ph test.So,what's your general hardness?

    Thatís problem

    Will the kh is 3 so that is in acceptable range but the gh started out very white and just went to orange did not turn green like it said it should but I remember doing the gh while back and it was not of chart so I think my kit is out dated will have to get another and try again .
