No everything I've read just says keep it around 9 but between 8and 12 is acceptable. I don't know why I just keep it at 9. I do know that over dosing can cause parcipitation.

Sps dosing

It's more swings in the levels that bothers things, my alk is pretty high ( 11.5ish last time I checked, but it's been a while I don't test very often ) but I use rscp and it mixes at a little over 12 at .025. Stability is key over any particular number IME.

So the birdsnest that i got went from being completely fine one day to waking up the next looking all bleached. So I took it and fragged it and put it in different spots in my aquarium hoping one of them will come back. Some have a couple polops but barley. Any idea what it could be? Or any suggestions? I read around and some people say its normal??

I mean if something was really bad in my tank wouldnt the acros go first? They seem to be really happy and polops are really open and everything
