Given that he is running a CaRx dumping in 6.5 pH effluent, I am going to go with an un-calibrated pH probe.Dude what are you doing that your pH curve looks like that??
I run a kalk reactor and co2 scrubber as well. As long as I clean and change the media in both the kalk reactor and co2 scrubber PH stays highKeeping that range is fine for acros. Hard to fathom reaching/keeping those ranges while running a Calcium reactor. Calibrating your probe is a pain with APEX, but you might want to do that again.
yes, i have only had this high PH since adding kalk reactor.. let me know how your sps react , mine so far look great as far as PE goesIs that a new change? Wondering how growth is looking in that range, I'd imagine pretty dang fast. I've started to run kalkwasser in combo with my calcium reactor. I've seen a nice little boost about .2. I'm going slow but looking forward to what I get at a full concentrated solution. I was blowing through scrubber media and it got too costly.
Right? Even with a scrubber and Kalk Stirrer I can barely get to 8.3 lolFirst World problem - I wish that I have this same "problem" with higher pH! I run a CaRx so I counter with kalk in ATO, CO2 scrubber thru air pump (need to feed via skimmer this weekend), and open the windows/door often when I'm home. However, my peak is only 8.1.
Yup — at some point, I’m going to stop chasing this pH unicorn but hey — it’s a challenge and fun! My low is 7.86 at night, not good. I run Alk between 8.5-9.5 and currently it’s a little on the low side.Right? Even with a scrubber and Kalk Stirrer I can barely get to 8.3 lol
