Don't try and skip any timeframe under any circumstances. If you want ich GONE for good then you need to see it through.

Think about it..... What is 9 weeks of fish keeping when you measure it against the years and years of pleasure you will have from keeping healthy fish and lower the risks of any wipeouts.

I'm in no rush why I'm going through hypo and no quick fix. Only thing I'm worried about is the ph dropping when doing it.

To be honest if you're doing big water changes frequently then your ph should be ok

I usually don't have much flow in mine. Right now I have a 45g holding tank with a small HOB filter and a nano power head. Have unfortunately had my fish in there for a few weeks now (not treating, just trying to get my 240v up). Everyone is doing fine.

So I've started to lower salt levels and today I've tested water and ph says its 7.6 - 7.8, alk is 7, ammonia is 0 nitrite is 0 and nitrate is 10-20. So think my ro water is bit low on the ph and alk side of things so can I add seachem reef builder to my ro water to help bring the levels back up or is there anything else can use.
