I think the list is great, especially all the chemical names.

Anyway I thought total dissoved solids was TDS? or maybe it is also known as TDS.

The list has it as:

TSC - Total Dissolved Solids meased in ppm, also know as uS

HC is Hemianthus callitrichoides.

I wish this bad habit of extreme shorthanding of plant names would stop. It's fine to use HC if the poster first writes the full name of the plant somewhere in his/her post. Otherwise, it's just poor etiquette IMO.
