    Ok so you want my opinion

    This is what I would do if it was my tank.

    I would only dose Alk. No water changes, no components 1,2,3 , no magnesium additions , nothing but Alk and feed the fish. That's it.

    Now when dosing Alk it is safe imho to dose no more that 1DKH increase in a 24 hour period.

    I wouldnt do anything else. I would continue to dose .5 to 1 dkh per day and let the rest sit.

    It will come down .... it has to eventually.

    If you follow my advice your tank will equalize.

    Each day , everyday test Alk , cal, and mag once per day at the same time each day.
