    there is a conversation table in the very end of the API instructions so yea your hardness is at the high end did you also test your tap water hardness?

    I would leave it as is what are the ammonia,trites and trates at the moment?

    My ammonia is 4 PPM. Nitrites 0. Nitrites below 5 PPM. It took 18 drops of the GH before the vial changed
    from orange to green for my tap H2o

    With the API ammonia test you won't know if your ammonia level is 4ppm or 5 ppm. Above 4ppm, the cycle does slow down. I would do enough of a water change to bring ammonia below 4ppm, something like 25-50%.

    just use your tap water for the cycle, and not alter the PH.
