The batch i have now in the water the ph stabilized in 2 1/2 weeks but i changed the water 5-6 times a day. The more you change that water the quicker you get that ph to stabilize. When i read about diy rock i read it took 2 months so i kept on looking and found a guy who did it in 2 weeks. Changing the water a couple times a day. And it worked. Now they are curing with my live rock to get them seeded.
