So I've been using this product for I'd say 2-3 weeks now. And my PH still won't even touch 8.0 it stays at 7.4 or 7.8 [emoji58][emoji58]

I've been doing 2 gallon water changes

Maybe that's the problem either to little or to much water is changed idk ugh

PH - 7.8
Nh3 - 0ppm
No2 - .25ppm
No3 - 0ppm

Whats your alk at?
how are you testing PH?
How many corals do you have, refugium?
Ie, co2 uptake.

got it. right now you have noting absorbing c02, just making it. fish and bacteria both. So ill assume in a fowler a lower PH is quite normal. Id def keep more of an eye on good surface agitation skimmer, etc to insure oxygenation of the water than anything else.

Im not super familiar with ph in Fowler tanks and the normal ranges. yours does sound correct however.

I cant find a good really artice on Fowler PH, but here's this.http://www.ratemyfishtank.com/blog/how-to-modify-ph-in-a-saltwater-tank
