Param question

Here's a curious question, as the corals are using up the calcium and alkalinity to build their exo skeleton does this in turn lower the salinity and the ph?

Param question

No. The sodium chloride levels remain the same and are effected by evaporation. The ph is stabilized by proper alk levels, so in that regard alk can effect ph swings.
