125 gallon. Filters running. Temp is right. Do I need to add anything else to water. Like lake Malawi salt? Also how do I get my ph up and maintain it? Thank u

Did you cycle the tank? Allow six weeks for that.

What are the test results for pH, KH and GH from your tap and your tank without additives.

Most often additives are avoidable and that is a VERY good thing.

In the other forum you said pH = 7.5?

I've never heard of a KH = 0.

What test kit did you use?

I would try crushed coral in the filter as a part of your media to see if you can bump the KH up a little. Invest in the test kit with liquid reagents, these will give you results you can trust.

Here is the article in the Cichlid-forum Library about fishless cycling:
