Dosing

Does dosing Alky change the magnesium level? I set the dos for 5ml a day yesterday & today found my magnesium went up from from 1410 to 1440. My Alky maintained 8.6

Dosing alk shouldnt raise mag. How big is the tank? What test kits are you using?

Honestly Id say this is probably just user error. Mag doesnt go up easily without pouring a ton of it into the tank and dosing alk cant really affect it.

Appreciate your thoughts. Must be right. Just checked again & its 1425. I added a second fan to the tank yesterday which may of caused something. Who knows. My PH finally went from in the 7s to 8.1 today. Think the new fan may of been the cause. Im really trying to test everyday lately because I dont like losing expensive frags.
