generally the A comps and Calvus are more expensive than mbuna or young peacocks...

or at least that is how it is a little north of you...

There are a few ideas in the cookie cutters.

The reading from the tap doesn't accurately portray what it is 24 hours from now. I would recommend letting some water sit for at least 24 hours, then test it.

A Buffer Recipe is HERE

Now, the key here is to have a measureable amount of water, let it sit for 24 hours. Then start to add the buffer...slowly. Record your results. When you get to your desired ph and hardness, stop, and do the math.

For example, if you use 5 gallons of water as your test, and there ends up being 65 gallons of water (approximately), multiply the amount of buffer by 13.
