The JBL GH Test Kit is an easy is to use quick test to determine the total hardness. Die GH indication of the proportion of magnesium and calcium ions in the water. It is important to provide a near-natural fish water.
Many popular freshwater aquarium fish come from soft water. For freshwater aquariums and garden ponds, the total hardness of between 5 and 20 - dGH lie. Aquarium, the place to go fill up with water only evaporated water, thus increasing the non-evaporating mineral content and hence the GH. This should be avoided at all costs!
The total hardness says nothing about the stabilization of the pH. This is the responsibility of the carbonate hardness. It is usually a part of GH. However, there are waters in which the CH is higher than GH, such as in Malawi and Lake Tanganyika in East Africa. To provide such a water fishing can offer a special salt to JBL: JBL AquaDur Malawi / Tanganyika.

Dennerle CO2 Night Cut-off Valve Comfort
For magnificent plant growth, DENNERLE recommends a CO2 content in the aquarium of approx. 20 mg/l.
As certain correlations apply between CO2 content, carbonate hardness (CH) and pH value, the CO2 content in the water can be calculated according to a simple procedure:
Measure the carbonate hardness of your aquarium water.
Read the pH value which corresponds to the desired CO2 content from the table. You should set this pH value +/- 0.1 by adjusting the number of bubbles accordingly. Example: Carbonate hardness 4 °d, recommended pH 6.8 +/- 0.1.
The procedure is even simpler with the DENNERLE CO2 long-term test Correct + pH.
$18.00Dymax Base Soil series decreases the hardness of the water and lower the pH level to the degree at which most aquatic plants can consume nutrients and comfortably grow. The soil granules maintain the shape and density underwater security good circulation of water oxygen through the substrate. With Dymax Base Soil, growing difficult plants become easier and it is ideal for fishes demanding soft water.
