Alright, I'm really working hard here and I appreciate your patience and help.
I haven't added any marine buffer in almost two weeks. My dKH
is at 7 and my pH is between 7.8 and 8.0.
Those might be right around the right range but I would feel better if they were a little higher? I noticed my powerhead had slipped and wasn't agitating the surface as much as it used to. So I made it about an inch below the waterline and it's got a lot of surface action going on now. Will this help?
How else to get it up and stable?
Also, I lost a royal gramma today. Yesterday it was fine and eating and active and today it's dead. I don't think the water parameters were too bad for it.. but I did notice one of my other fish flicking against a rock. What's this mean?
My water params are amm: 0, nitrIte: 0, nitrAte: ~20, pH: 7.8-8.0, dKH
: 7, SG
: 1.025, Temp F: 78
