I noticed from the trident that changing nutrient levels also significantly affects ALK consumption (peaks and dips) due to growthI mean don't get me wrong, I totally understand the pH/alk relationship, but just look at July 10, there's a mini-spike (before CO2 scrubber I think) of about 7.8 pH and the alk is just over 8.01 in a deep valley, then June 14th when he probably added the scrubber pH peaks at 8.16 but alk barely drops at all to 8.26, then the next two days at the high pH point there is a massive dip in alkalinity that you'd probably expect from higher pH. But if you look at his earlier graphs post #325 3rd graph, in later days the dips once again aren't as big, but not as small as the first. So some theories that come to mind
1: I'm over analyzing this data (this one is a given)
2: The accuracy of the Trident is suspect
3: Corals maybe grow in spurts within spurts, when lights are on obviously, but maybe some days they simply stop growing as much as others
4: Maybe he pulled out some sps on those days so demand on alk decreased
Either way, it's interesting to say the least.
