I do think it’s kind of ironic my pup and Frank’s always seem to be close…

Ohhh I love math lol but wouldn’t determining how much to dose for PH be flawed due to it having too many variables ? Like CO2 concentration vs oxygen in tank / alkalinity / flow. I wouldn’t worry about PH , rather that you have good flow , cal alk and mg dialed in and maybe some open windows near tank?
Yes this calculation would be for a closed system, not an open thus all the factors you listed would be in play. I just want to get the pH up of 8.0 before I leave for the next two days.

Oh interesting , do you have any power heads pointed to the surface or does the water fall directly into the sump? I use a wet /dry filter and it keeps my PH pretty high , I was oxygen limited before (small apt) , you could also kalk drip but that’s how I got my alk to be 14 dkh lol

So I am in the lab and I am working on some calculations for KOH in my tank.

Did an advanced volume calculation to determine my total water volume is 405L

Does this look right??? Currently I have the KOH diluted to a concentration of 0.21M instead of the 0.85M so that I can dose 3mL instead of 0.8mL

Just seems ridiculously small to me, especially since I dosed 100mL yesterday at a concentration of 0.36M and it only raised the pH to 7.5
Moles live underground.

Just like Shelbs. (Sorry I have hijacked your dogs name and given her a nickname already...) You’re good! I like double puppage. Bonus secret puppy spam of Shelby being adorable on Boo.

That they are. My Tomini has finally come out and going to town on rock work. Non stop rock plucking all day long:D Super peaceful timid little guy.
That is a hope I have to look forward to with my setup... once I decide on final tank layout now that I have too many options with too many tanks! ...definitely leaning toward going straight to the 125 even though it changes my plans and hinders current progress...
Tomini is definitely in my plans!

I have a powder brown thats nuts. Super nervous constantly darting around beating up my snails. Tomini is exact opposite and likes to hang out with my clowns. I think they have adopted him haha
I may see if I can bring powder brown back and trade for another peaceful tang that does work. Hes throwing off the vibe in the tank lol

If it were me I’d go with scopas. But I’m biased
