It appears that your KH went down with the water change. Was it not at 5 yesterday and now it's 3?

jip true dont know what would have caused it though. as we did water change the membranes opened very big as if they just absorbed all the new nutrients. I waited about an hour or so before I tested.

If the hammer was in the tank when you were using rscp it may just be a matter of it getting used to the new params. Rscp mixes very high in trace element levels so it may just take a while to adjust to your tanks new levels
