Thank you for your help in advance.
I have a 75g with 45lbs LR
and 20 gallon refugium with 24 hr lighting. The pH of the tap water that I use is 8.4. When I drip in Kalk
, my calcium goes to 350 and my dKH
goes to 10, both of which are fine with me...however, my pH then goes to 8.6 which is a little high. I am not sure how to get it down. I have tried to use vinegar with the Kalk
, but that does not do it. I want to get parameters perfect before getting coral. Any suggestions?
