I finally got my betta today and I'm testing the water to make sure I won't kill him. I have some nifty test strips that make it pretty much idiot proof but I only have one concern; the results.
Nitrate and nitrite are at 0. So I know that's good.
The general hardness is at 0 as well.
The Carbonate Hardness however, is not at 0 and is instead at the highest - 240. I looked at the instructions where it lists the conditions for certain fish and they don't have betta on there! So that's one of my questions: what should the KH be at?
And pH is at a pinkish 7.5 (on a scale from 6.0 - 9.0) I'm a tad worried about this as well and want to know if this is good or needs to be fixed?
I have some water conditioner that I can add but I want to check and see if these are indeed problems or if I'm just being paranoid.
