This is very interesting. I had no idea our (yes folks another Seattleite
here) tap water KH fluctuated so much. I add NaHCO3 to my tank water to
keep the KH around 3-4, so this is not a really important issue for me -
but I don't have that 1dKH Apisto tank I've been dreaming about yet,
either. Are there any people on the list in hard-water areas who have
really substantial seasonal KH fluctuation?
