I don't have a test kit for that. Should I pick one up?

Dkh= alkalinity. But if your using an api reef kit you should really look into better kits. IMHO your next 2 purchases should be an ro/di unit and quality tests before you try any more sensitive creatures

I'll pick up a dkh kit later today. I believe my Lfs sells kent, would kent be considered quality. As for all the others they will have to wait a week or two.

Test it again. Sounds like a miss test or count.

Don't let it get much lower than that. I would test it every day to see how it fluctuates, and possibly purchase a buffer to correct it.

Ok. If I do end up needing a buffer what is the proper level.

Well, stability is more important than anything. You don't want it bouncing all over the place. I would keep it somewhere between 8 and 9.

Sounds good. I would hope to avoid dosing anything. I'll keep an eye on it. Thanks.
