It is pointless to chase pH, that is correct. But if the swing of your pH naturally is low, then you will need to do something about it. I'd bet you could fix your pH just by pointing a powerhead at the surface to get some more oxygen into the water. Dosing for pH can screw your alkalinity up pretty hard, then effecting the growth of your corals.

I also change my water every week. Volume wise probably 28 gallons so around 35-40%

Hey there well the ph was the same last night. We are going on vacation an i have a feeling when i return the tank will be a disaster.

My neighbor knows to feed them. Im getting a timer for the lights today which requires a three prog plug. There are 3, three prong lights. Do i get an extension cord then plug it into the timer which is in the wall? Sounds like a fire hazard.

I have an option of bagging up the brain and taking it to the lfs hospital. What do you advise?

I tried hand feeding it but she wouldn't open her mouths or tentacles.

Remember that your body temp is 98.6, so 80 will feel cool to the touch.
