Mr. Gomberg's response is right on. If you really want to understand how
hardness, alkalanity, and pH are interrelated in our aquariums you have
to first understand the basics. For the novice a high-school chemistry
book may be a necessary start but probably might need to be augmented
with a basic college text.
I have recently been getting good use of "Chemistryfor Environmental
Engineering" Sawyer/McCarty/Parkin McGraw Hill 1994.

Mr. Gomberg, I do not appreciate your patronizing tone.
I specifically posted that request on this list because
there are list members, who are well-versed in chemistry,
who could suggest reliable text books, the kinds that are
not peppered with errors. I would never waste my hard-
earned money by getting a book the way you just described.
