Well as the title states I want to know what everyone keeps their alkalinity level at. I have been following a thread on dosing alk
and am curious as to what level yields the best growth, color and stability. I know carbonate hardness has an effect on calcium levels so on that note what do you strive to maintain for calcium also? I have found my alk
declining and have been on the prowl for a method of dosing. I am going to go with a 2 part dosing system once things level out but for now my calcium is high and alk
low so I've been using baking soda. What is the best 2 part system? I know BRS has one available but the seachem system adds other trace elements. Then there is kent. I want experiences and details folks, likes and dislikes along with the why's. a quick google search can easily tell a person a range of what's acceptable but acceptable isn't acceptable. I want to know a balance to shoot for that will make everything happy, healthy and grow in the same manner. Fire away everybody!!!!!!!!!!!
