Hi all,

question around how folks manage their pH levels during blackout periods - if you have to go 2-3 days here or there with a full black out (no lights, potentially wrap tank... hopefully not) ...

my pH fluctuates daily between 8 and 8.3-.35 or so ... from light but also alk dosing - which i would prob have to slow down for a few days due to decreased demand from corals

how do you guys handle? just deal with a low pH for a few days, then let stabilize after a week or so of normal lighting?

Do you think there is more to 3D printing in the Reef Aquarium Hobby that is yet to be realized?
