    Increasing your kH

    It is also cautious not to increase more than 2 dkH in 24 hours so as not to stress the fish. I guess this is because baking soda is alkaline and the pH will also go up.

    A few more tips:
    1. It's baking SODA (A.K.A. Sodium Bicarbonate or Bicarbonate of Soda), not to be confused with baking powder. Available at supermarkets and grocery stores in small bottles.
    2. Do not add directly to tank. Dissolve in some water first then add the solution slowly over the surface of the water. Avoid pouring directly onto or near the fishes.
