My Neptune Systems Aquacontroller arrived yesterday. I set it up and have been recording the results through aquanotes.
I'm getting some kind of interence from my MH
ballasts thats throwing the temp off. At night my temps read just above 80F. As each of my MH
ballasts kicks on I see an instant drop of about 1.2 degrees. Then as they the ballasts turn off at night the temps instantly increased 1.2 degrees. Other than that my temp graph is very stable. Anyone have any idea on how to block the interence from the MH
I did not realize the kit would not include calibration smaples for the PH
probe so it not calibrated yet. However I can still get an idea on stability from the graph. My testkit gives me a PH
around 8.3, the follwoing numbers are uncalibrated. Yesterday my PH
remained a pretty constant 8.08-8.09. When the last of my Lights went off it started a 3hour decline to about 8.00. Then about 4AM in started to increase again. I have yet to reach 8.08 but I'm guessing thats where it will level off at. I have been kepping my fuge lit 24/7 which I may change because of this. However I do find it odd that it would start increasing for no particular reason. I will be getting calibration fluids sometime this week.
