I finally drilled a hole in one of my outside brick walls in order to get a fresh air return to my skimmer. I had opened the windows in my walkout basement a couple weeks ago when it was cooler and noticed a significant increase in ph. I’ve dosed and dosed prior to raise with no real success, now that I have a new fresh air line ran from two out of the four monster pumps on my skimmer, I’ve already noticed a big increase on ph. Im trying to do this whiteout running a scrubber since my last tank was always stable. My new tanks skimmer is just insanely big and I think it’s just starving. Wish me luck in the next few days of hopefully seeing 8.3 finally

Do you house a "Reef Safe" Angelfish in your reef tank?
