My tank is on the tail end of the cycle. LR
went in on Wednesday (11/17).
On 11/19 I tested the following:
Nitrite: .1 (This has been consistant for a week or so)
On 11/21 I tested the following:
From what I understand I need to get my Ca
up to 450-500 and my alk
should get closer to 8 (is the falling Alk
going to lower my already borderline low PH
? Most of the tank has tap with Instant Ocean, 20% water change with the premix from the LFS
. Since they sell only IO from what I can see my best guess is that they are using it too?).
I know these things are all tied together but I'm not sure how much I can bring up the Ca
without having to do major adjustments to Alk
. What's the best way to get the PH
up without bringing up the Alk
any higher? What readings do you generally shoot for on your Ca
