    nitrate- under 10 ppm
    gh – about 6-8
    kh – about 5
    ph – about 7.2

    Don’t think I’ve ever tested for nitrAte, but the pH was about 7.0 and the kh between 1 and 2.

    just tested mine now from the cold water and very similar to Neil.

    ph – 7.0
    nitrite – 0
    nitrate- under 5 ppm (i’m frightened to test my tanks lol)
    gh – about 8
    kh – about 5

    rural village, 7 mile south west (other side if the tyne) of Newcastle

    Yeah I’m pretty much identical to Neill’s parameters, though I’ve had periods where the kH has been nigh non-existent.
