So this has been a great week for to have been able to setup the CaRx since I'm off all week long, and has allowed me to test 2 times a day.

And the tank has settled in with the Alk, and consumption. My Alk has been coming at 9.1 both morning and evening. I've changed the bubbles per second to 1 bubble every 10 seconds, and effluent rate is at 40ml a minute. Effluent is testing between 18-19 DKH. Been using the Salifert tests as they go a long way rather than the Hanah

I raised it to 40ml a minute yesterday and upped the bubble to 1 every 7-8 seconds and will be testing tonight, or tomorrow.

Can you post up another video of 40mL/min. I have my Kamora sitting in the box just begging me to fire it up. Waiting on the reactors which should be here in less than 2 weeks. I have everything thing else. I need to get gas, but that’s about it.
