I tested and found my PH to be low, so I added some baking soda to stop where it was or raise it some. Now my PH is 8.0 and my KH is very high at 17. My ca. is 330. What do I need to do about the KH?
I kind of had the same problem.
I guess a couple of 20% water changes should put you near normal.

What salt-brand are you using?
I switched brands of salt and so far I'm no longer having low pH issues.
I use instant ocean salt. I did a 25% wc today that droped it from 22 to 17. Guess I'll do another tomorrow. Thanks.
