One fine day, my pinpoint ph
meter went out. Low battery; oh well, my ph
had been steady at 8.2 for quite a while so I wasn't worried. Everything in the tank was happy as can be. Then, another fine day my skimmer pump went out. Took me a week and a half to get it replaced. By that time, my zoos were _very_ unhappy (mostly closed), my mushrooms also were shriveled. After I got my skimmer back online, I ran it for a couple of days and observed minor improvement. I had hoped to see more drastic improvement. So I started testing. Nothing bad, except it looks like my PH
dropped to 7.9 - 8.0. I've been dosing kalk
and doing water changes every 1-3 days since then. Everything's fine in the tank now (still ph
7.9 though!) except for the zoos (still a little closed) ... and there's cyano
. No phosphates showing up. No nitrates.
Thoughts? What's the best way to restabilize my pH?
