Hello everyone!
I found this water report and I was wondering how good or bad is this water for my african cichlids.

Hardness of 66 ppm (approx 3.5 dGH) and alkalinity of 36 ppm (2 dKH) is a bit low for Rift Lake cichlids. Add some aragonite gravel (crushed coral) either on the tank bottom or in a filter to raise both GH and KH. That should be all they need. Or you can achieve the same result using rift lake salts.

I like the idea to put crushed corals on the filter!
thanks!
