What is a TDS meter? (perhaps Total Dissolved Solids aka
hardness?). I am not quite sure.
Are pH and hardness related? I have been under the impression that
lower pH and lower hardness were synonymous.
Wright, being a relative newcomer to the hobby, I have made quite
a few mistakes that you describe. I did pay a lot of $$ for a
pH/Ammonia/Nitrite/Nitrate test kit and have used it once or twice in the
past year. Thanks for the informative post.
