Try to slow down your total hardness and also the carbonate hardness, which is the most umportant concerning the pH.

You'd better make a water change (a great one) with Osmosed water, since this water is perfect for fresh aquariums. After that, your GH and KH will permit you to fertilize with CO2 and your Dupla permanent test will turn green.

They are perfect because they have a good kelvin degree and also a very good RA. But you must
use it with a good reflector that makes light enter the aquarium and not the outside.
