I need some help please! I purchased some salt water tanks from someone at the beginning of march. We moved the whole thing. Water, live sand, fishes and live rocks. My 55 gallons is giving me some troubles especially with the water parameters. everything is doing good in the tank so far. I have tested his water when we brought it back and everytime I do a pwc
I check before and after. No changes since we got the tank. I use tap water ( I know... Ro
system to come later).
These are my parameters so far:
As for the GH
and calcium, I haven't been able to get a number yet.
I use the Hagen master kit (drops) and I have yet to get any results. I end up putting so many drops (like 50 I think) and still get nothing.
Now here are my questions: what do you suggest I do?
I have some reef fusion ( which raises carbonate alkalinity, and calcium) and I also have some reef buffer to raise my PH.
Are they any good? Are they products I would have to keep putting in all the time to keep a balanced water?
Also, what exactly is alkalinity? I do not have a test for that. Can you get one or is it a reference to something else? ( sorry, I have absolutely no idea).
Thanks for your help!
You have all helped me tremendously with all your posts!
