I got the co2 scrubbing media from two little fishes called CDX and it lasted longer than the BRS stuffinteresting, if I dont open up the windows for a few days, I can drop to the 7.8 range, but as long as i air the house out each night i can stay above 8, so i have been considering running a line outside. I will be interested to know how long the co2 media works. thats my main concern with it, people saying they have to replace every week! I know looping to the skimmer can help that too.
Any chance you could create a graph of alk + ph like the bottom one with the before picture? curious how pH really effects alkalinity.
Apex doesn’t control dosing, it’s all CarX does the dosing at .5ml/min all dayok doesn't look like there's a terribly large correlation between alkalinity and pH from that graph. Maybe the amount you dose is based on how much is getting used up? i.e. Trident is controlling the dosing?
You can see as the ph goes up the Alk goes down, alternatively as the ph goes down the alk goes up. Since hes using a CaRX with constant flow, the assumption is there is more alk consumption at higher ph (alk measurement goes down because of consistent replenishment.) This could also be related to light cycle (both alk numbers and ph numbers) i have noticed very similar results though. when ph stays more consistent, alk stays more consistent.ok doesn't look like there's a terribly large correlation between alkalinity and pH from that graph.

No rocks, just bare bottom, same with my frag tank. And yes my frag tank is full too, those are just montis I moved over.Do you think you’ll put any rocks in the front? Or leave it bare for more frags. Did you fill the frag systems
