No it hasn't.

KH is reading around 20d and ph is around 7.8 (probably because I added
sodium bicarbonate last week).
Water temperature is around 29C. Its warm atm!

GH is still zero 24 hours later.

Maybe I didn't add enough.
Even the smallest amount makes the water go a white as snow.
I'm worried the fish in it might suffer.
