Rated 5 out of 5 by petroman1185 raises gh for plants and show guppies
I live in nj where our tap water has chloramines, nitrites, and nitrates in it, very bad for fish. I have been using ro and di water for the past 25 years. I use the equilibrium to bring up the gh, but most importantly its works great with my plants and show guppies. I keep my gh and ph where i like them to be. I do weekly water changes of 40 percent, easy to use. I use a tds meter when i do water changes so i get the right mix. great product.

In my area of the southeast the water containsalmost no dissolved minerals. I sent back 2 water test kits because they failed to give a GH result. The kits turned out to work fine, so then when they checked my water, they told me the bad news: there's almost no minerals in it.
So my fish definitely NEED this product.
I add it in over several days, raising the GH from 0 to 6-7 over about 2 weeks.
I can see the difference in my fish, it's amazing.

If you start a water change with RO water, like I do, then this product is essential. I use RO water because I can control the water chemistry that way, which means I can control the algae growth. This product provides the GH part of the equation. You would need the Alkaline Buffer product to add the KH. The only drawback is that it clumps and cakes much too much. I solve this by pouring the desired amount of Equilibrium into about a quart of water and using a hand mixer to make a milky fluid out of it. I then pour that mixture into the reservoir tank I use to store my RO water before pumping it into my tanks.
