Hi Keith! My pH is 8.2...all my other parameters which I've been consistently testing are normal and stable, just the Alk that I never really tested too much had dipped.@Cheeze what's your pH? The pH boost will be temporary. If you dose it continuously you will get a continuous pH boost, but I dont recall how much of a boost. This is what I'm going to try next: daily dosing of a small amount of sodium carbonate. I have a Neptune DOS so might try dosing tiny amounts more frequently than daily. My pH hit 7.8 yesterday. Need to 2x check pH calibration and if in spec then I've got a problem I need to solve before I get corals. Also planning to run an air line to my attic to feed my skimmer.
I'm going to be dosing baking soda, but manually a little at a time each day, thanks to the sound advice from Randy in a different thread I had posted.
