I've had a LOT of problems. First, there was the WEIRD outbreak of diatom-looking stuff, then the cyano
, (and let me say, I don't feed my fish more than once a week, and I use RO
water) and then there was the ph problem... with a steady calcium reading of 500 and alk
of 14 dkh
, I still couldn't get my ph above 7.8 without dangerously increasing the alk
. Switched back to Pacific Ocean salt, and whoa, my ph rose to 8.2 and stays there like white on rice. Cyano
cleared up, diatom stuff is clearing, and the tank is back to normal. I will never again use that Oceanic crap.
