I have added a sump to my 40 gal
. saltwater tank and my PH
has risen. For the last 6 months my PH
has been consistently 8.2 (average). With the addition of a 15 gallon sump 2 weeks ago, the PH
has been inbetween 8.4-8.6.
Nitrate = 10
Nitrite = 0
Amn = 0
Could to much oxogen cause th PH
to rise? With the addition of the HOB
overflow into my sump, there seems to be a lot of air injected into the water at the sump inflow.
Water changes are a quick fix but the PH
level creeps up within a couple days. What to do?
