Thats what stresco said too. I did a 10% wc
yesterday and then again this morning. Everything is back to normal...if 8.1-8.2 is ok. Maybe a little lower than I was aiming for...it was at 8.7 when i started. My inverts seem to be getting on with things, except one starfish, he looks like he needs more time to adjust. I didn't expect the ph
to go down so fast, is that going to harm anything? Also I use a two part additive, ocean's blend. I always use this when my cal is getting low, but I am supposed to use it w/ the ph
additive it comes with. Is this a product I should avoid? Should I be adding things seperately? It also contain trace elements and and all that good stuff. I only have a test kit for cal and alk
, none for trace and all that other stuff...
