I was hoping to get some answers to this. We have a 180g reef tank and are having issues keeping the ph up. The ph fluctuates between 7.8 - 8.2. My husband is trying to keep it higher at 8.4. However, when I test the alk
, it's running in the "high" range of the red sea kit. We just did a 30g water change the other day, but nothing seems to make the alk
go down. Also, we live in south Florida, so we have all the windows closed all the time. is this something to worry about?? Our fish seem to be doing well, as well as the nemes and corals we have. The corals are a few mushrooms and I just got a sun polyp and Pom Pom frag today.
Also, noticed green coralline starting to grow on the glass.
Ammonia, trates, and trites are all 0.
Live stock fish include
Mated false percula pair
Mated squareback Anthia pair
3 yellow chromis
Pink spotted goby
6 line wrasse - new
Cherub Pygmy angel - new
1 skunk cleaner shrimp
Hermit crabs -red, electric blue, and Cortez
Snails - turbo, astria, and nassarius
2sand sifting starfish
Please help if you can or if we are worrying for nothing, that would be great.
