So I’ve created a thread and I’d like to hear your thoughts and experiences with alkalinity. My tank is about 5 months old. I initially started running alk at 7.5-8, dosing ever hour. My LPS and softies looked good. I decided to increase the alk slightly and am now running 9.8. My LPS has never looked better. More polyp extension and my acans, blastos and lobos are puffier than ever. I plan on making this tank primarily a SPS tank here soon and I know I’ll have to lower my alk, but for now I’m loving the way the everything looks. What are your thoughts and experiences with alkalinity and polyp extension?
