    Bees?

    I paid $200 or so to get someone to clear several medium size yellow jacket nest on the eaves. It’s 2 story high. I tried to spray the nest ( aerosol on a long pole ). When they start to swarm, I run for my life! Can’t imagine if I’m on a ladder. Not fun.

    Alkatronics experience

    I enable auto dosing, but set the low to 8.0. . Have not trigger the dose yet. So far my tank have been very stable ( as expected) . I did make minor adjustment to reduce the alk swing. I also increase kalk to get ph up at night. Still very happy with the purchase .

    Klakwasser

    I concur. No need to dose kalk. If you alk is at 8.2 and stable, let it be. No need to complicate things otherwise you’ll end up like me ( I have 5 dosing container + ato) . Life should be easier but oh well

    Klakwasser

    I have a Alkatronic. Automated test at 7am and 7pm, which is close to the low and high peak based on the lights schedule. I don’t know the ph curve at night. The machine is too noisy for me to turn it on at night. the key takeaway (if any) from my experience is ph increase is minimal (0.2) for...

    Klakwasser

    Short answer is YES. The concentration matters . How do you plan to dose kalk? ATO or dosing pump? I hope you’re not dumping 2tbs directly to the tank. What’s your tank evaporation rate? I’m pumping 1.5L (2tbs - max concentration) at night and I still get at 0.3 ph drop. I have a 65g tank...

    Alkatronics experience

    I hear you. I don't have any problem as well, but i always ended up overcomplicate things because i can. :) Technically i don;t need an automated alk tester. Its a toy.

    Alkatronics experience

    Happy with the setup so far, except the noise (which is known to me before the purchase). I have been making minor tweak on my dosing pump to flatten the alk curve. :) Its probably not going to matter much, but this is the downside of too much data and the urge to make things better. My alk...
