Well I haven't posted much lately, been busy and for the most part things are unchanged in the tank. I have been dealing with an issue of low PH lately and as a result the corals are not growing at the rate I would like. Before this goes on much longer I am going to start adding Kalk to my top-off water to deal with the issue. I've never had an issue with PH before so this will be a new process for me. I'm looking at maybe getting a kalk stirrer if this solves the issue. Eventually I want to add a Calc reactor as well. Time will tell on what additions I have to make to balance things.

On a side note I absolutely love my MP10s! The corals seem to love it and wow do they push the gook out of the system. My skimmer has to be emptied twice a week now.

I'll update some info later when I add the kalk and what concentration I go with.

What intensity and what setting are you running the mp10's on?

Did you end up getting a kalk stirrer?

I have my MP10s on Wave mode and they are at about 50% max intensity with a pretty short wave cycle.

I have not decided on the Kalk stirrer. Right now I'm adding Kalk to my top-off water. My PH has been stable the last couple days at 8.03 which is an improvement over what it has been. I want to get it to 8.2-8.4 but will have to do it slowly. Right now my Kalk solution is 4 tsp/5g so very weak. I will up it this coming weekend to 6 tsp and see how the tank does.
