If u will bump ph thru more alk, supliment dose. It will both raise your alk and bump ur ph.Did a 20g water change today. Unfortunately it's the biggest I can do with my current setup. That's not really ideal on my 100g system to bring down the iodine and lithium. Things look fine, so I may just keep rolling on with 20g water changed once a week.
The only thing I don't like about the system right now is I have a pretty good amount of algae growth. I'm thinking the nitrate dosing and the large amount of new rocks are doing it. SPS are looking the best they ever have so, I'm just going to keep doing what I’m doing.
Check that. Two things I don't like. The carx has really reduced my overall ph. I need to find a way to raise it a bit. I think I may try raising my alk from 7.5-8 to 8.5-9 ish to see if that helps keep the ph a bit higher. I have turned on my dos to slowly raise the alk and see what happens.
It also hurts because I haven't been able to open windows for a few weeks. Today is the first day I opened windows in over two weeks. My ph has jumped up .03 in only two hours even with the lights dimming.
Readings from today
Ph range 7.84-8.22
Alk 7.9 steady
How much hit u took on the ph. I remember ur originsl ph wad pretty high already
