Re: [APD] 0 KH

I was adding bicarbonate of soda when I did water changes, but I have  
stopped that.  I don't see a difference in the tank yet, but it has  
been less than a month that I've been doing that.  My tap water runs  
around 2 KH.  I had been trying to achieve the 3-4KH minimum I  
understood to be essential.
