What do you use to get the kg and gh in the correct zones? I started using the api calcium. Will that help get the kg up if it’s low?

I used a Rift Lake water conditioner for African Rift Lake cichlids.

Depending on the fish you keep and the GH level required, you add a certain amount.

Adding mineral salts to raise the GH will usually raise the KH and pH too.

Before going down this road, you/we need to know the parameters of your source water, and the intended fish species. You may be OK with what comes out of the tap.

If you are in Sacramento, California, I would have thought your water is on the hard side rather than soft... ? The GH, KH (Alkalinity) and pH need to be known.
