Livestock still in bucket with it's tank water. circulation pump and heater.
pH of RO
was 7.5. 75G tank before transfer 8.3, after transfer same 8.3, Salinity 35ppt tem 79.5
QT tanks (2 of them) pH 8.2 on both, temp 79.8 and 80.1, Salinity on 1 is 39 and another is 40.
Salinity on 75G is 35 and on 10gal is 41. I have no clue how these got like this, I'm glad everyone is good, I'm trying to adjust them to get them where they belong, but I have no clue how the salinity's went up sooooo much.
On my 75 and 10 gal
, my pH readings were inconsistent.
75gal - 8.4, 8.2, then down to 7.8 (all today within a short time).
10gal - consistently 8.0, then 7.1, then 7.6 and stays there.
I calibrated my pH tester and it reads what it is supposed to during calibration.
My refractometer is acting weird too, one time the salinity level line and up is all blue like it should be and the next time it could be like that again, or a blue "hue" in the middle, say between 35ppt and 45ppt it's blue and the closer to 45ppt the less blue and above 45ishppt it's white.
Any suggestion, I've calibrated the refractometer also. I don't want to increase or decrease anything til I find the true numbers, as I said everyone is doing good. If these numbers are right then the 10G is gonna be used longer because any changes I make has to be small and slow.
I'm lost. Why would my pH change like that so much and lastly if I add pH Buffer would it adjust it too fast. (I have API proper pH 8.2).
