Starting running phosguard for high phosphates a month ago (.15ppm) and it held stable at 0.02ppm for a week then bottomed out. dKh also dropped from 8.9 to 7.5 and I’ve been dosing both but nothing is keeping them stable. Should I dose more?
Phosguard has been out for over a week. But… phosphate levels rocket back up the next day and the glass is dirty. I thought phosguard only brings it down to 0.02?
Other than some acans looking deflated everything else looks great. I guess you could say im trying to chase that .02-.05 number. Should I just let the phos levels stabilize?I usually don’t mess with phos levels in my tanks-although I don’t run much chemical filtration either outside of skimming when needed.
the most detrimental thing I’ve done to the tank has been to remove too much phosphate at once.
Why are you trying to remove it? To chase that perfect number or because your coral are suffering?
