Now I really do not get it!!! I just did my weekly 8-10 percent water change. I tested all of my levels. nitrites and nitrates are zero. Calcium is 250!!! I checked the ph
with a tetra test kit and it said 8.0 The color looked a little off, so I used a spare test kit which is a sailfert and the reading is 7.7! I tested a little of my make up water, ph
also 7.7 The dkh
was 11. I have been dosing with B ionic daily. I have not added the mag yet, because I need to wait until I get paid. (which is thursday)
I thought maybe this is due to my water prep. I use RO
water and instant ocean. I mix it up, add a powerhead and let it stir for a few days. Why would the pH be so low, and is this the cause of my low calcium? I am at a loss!
