[Killietalk] TDS vs. Conductivity
Simplicity is fine as long as one understands the primary
fundamentals. The complicated parts belong in the theory. The bottom
TDS is measured with a balance or scale.
Conductivity is measured with electricity/ a resistance meter.
if one keeps these thoughts in mind, then go run with it . . . raise
n breed the fish with the knowledge and experience of those who come
before and in your experience, tables and charts. measure what you
can and change what is best. it is not all predictable nor
controllable, but that is why we study Science, to control and
predict our environment . . .
Change as much water as often as you can,
