Maybe they liked the alk high? Hopefully they weren’t hung over in the morning? Maybe more like carb loading before a race? Fingers crossed for you.Ok the good the bad the ugly!!
So yesterday I was back from MACNA and realized that while bouncing around traveling the day before I had inadvertently turned off my alk doser! So it was a little low and dropped below 8. Rather than Manually dose 30 ml I was in my office and turned on the doser through my apex. Got distracted ...phone call, grandson, amish patient with hip necrosis. At 5 pm I was getting ready to move some coral around and checked my trident readings and realized that the last reading at noon was 12 I checked the current level with my Hanna and got a 15.7!!!! Panic mode set in....turned off alk, did 40g water change, called Steven @dantimdad, turned off fuge light for the night. Cussed myself out for hours.
Noon alk 12.5
5pm. Alk 15.7 salinity 32.5 ph 8.9
7pm alk 12.7 ph 8.7
6am alk 11.5 ph 8.2.
So far all look well. Torch and frog spawn bigger then ever and waving in the flow! Yikes I’m an idiot!!!! Grrrr!
