Haha alright. Does he still mess it up or did he make all his tunnels now?

We did a bunch of work yesterday and earned 70 dollars..... With that money we bought a ton of green/red mushrooms, alk buffer, and some mysis shrimp to feed the boys!!!

A few shrooms are the size of my fist to give you a reference.... I have large hands too. Lol!

If you can track how much it goes down and then add a certain amount every other day or so to get it back up, it would be ideal. Dosing can actually be bad if levels fluctuate too much.

Ya! Ill test tomorrow. Problem is i dont know exactly how much buffer raises the alk say 1 point. So i have to experiment to find out. Plus water changes bump it back up so its hard to tell

Yeah, you test it once a day until you find out how much it raises it (it might even say on the bottle)
