Just wondering if there are any know issues with the Salifert Alk
To give some history, I have been battling a chronic low Alk
problem in my tank. I thought it may be because the Kent Tech CB product was weak so I switched over to B-Ionic in hopes that would alleviate my low Alk
problem. It didn't. My Alk
always measures at or below 8DKH. I was really confused today when I tested my newly mixed batch of new Oceanic salt today. Guess what the Alk
reading was??? Yup, 8DKH. So I took the Oceanic salt to the LFS
today to see what they measured it out as. They took a reading of 12 DKH
. Significantly higher than I am getting with my kit.
This worries me a little as I have been putting quite a bit of ALK
into my tank the past two weeks because I "thought" I had an ALK
I am going to post this over on RC in Salifert's vendor forum and see what they have to say. Perhaps I just got a bad kit.
