Thanks, but I can't keep doing more tests...they're driving me crazy, and no matter what the tests show, someone always disses whatever brand of test it is that they don't use, or says there's yet another test needed to complete the chemical picture.
If you can, Id appreciate just a practical, easy tip that I could try, recognizing that everything is experimental and maybe even a shot in the dark to some degree.
My tank and all inhabitants are really doing well, so I don't want to introduce a revolution or suddenly do a massive water change.
What I thought might work would be to stop using the alk
part of the B-ionic calicum buffer system, and just use the calc part a couple of times a week....alternatively, just stop both parts for a while.
What do you think?
