Equilibrium only raises gH, it does not raise kH so you need to be adding kH to the water either by changing to an all-in-one product like Aquadur or by also using Seachem Alkaline Buffer. You'll need to use it in every water change, and during cycling when you're not changing water will need to monitor the kH and add more buffer when kH drops due to the activity of the bacteria.
