I just bought seachem reef buffer because my PH
was 7.0 which I am not sure why. It says to add 1 level teaspoon to every 40 gallons of water which I have about 40 gallons total to raise the PH
by 0.1 PH
units. I added 2 level teaspoons to raise it by 0.2 units. On the label it says that if my water turns cloudy and stays this way for more than 15 minutes that my tank water is not Ionically Balanced. What does this mean and what should I do about this. It says to restore Ionic balance do a water change or adjust the magnesium and calcium levels to 3:1 Mg
. The other problem I have is that I have really high calcium and have not been able to get it down. My alkalinity was perfect though the LFS
said. I am having problems with pest algae and need to know what is the best way to get my water back to the way it is supposed to be. Water changes, supplements, what?
