Re: Aquatic Plants Digest V3 #723

Today I purchased a GH and KH test kit and tested my tap water. My kH reads
around 8-9, while my GH reads around 12. I knew my water was fairly hard. Has
anyone had success growing plants in water this hard??? I am considering
purchasing a deionizer from my LFS, but not sure if this would make a
difference. This would basically strip my tap water of all it's chemicals, I
could than fertilize using the PMDD. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I
running out of options, as well as money. 

I currently have two heavily planted tanks that require weekly trimming
(especially milfoil and H. difformis) that have a KH of 8 and a GH of 8.  I
would not believe this to be your problem.
