i just started my salt water tank up for the sec time. the first i had major problems. now i think i am starting to have the same ones over. i just mixed my salt into my tank and i have a maxi-jet 900 mixing the water.my salt i use says that it buffers my ph
to a 8.2 but its been 2 days and my ph
is below 7.8. i have nothing in my tank to cycle it yet i have LR
on its way. the only thing i have in my tank is 2 bags of carib sea aragonite, 1- 300 watt heater and a xp2 filter with just carbon in it. i have a protine skimmer but i have not put that on the tank yet.
how do i go buy fixing my ph
could my lights drop my ph
that much? and do you leave your lights on at night or off so the fish can sleep? lol or does it matter.
