    ph is rising after cycling

    thank you for the input, i am not offended and it's entirely accurate. The ph controller is mostly for comparisons sake, i do not have enough, or really anything at all in the tank to start dosing for ph. That said, I have no plans to use the controller portion of the MW in the beginning. I have...

    20g jbj aio rm

    Thank you! a pair of clowns and a blood red fire shrimp. I'm thinking Caulastrea Corals and Pulsing Xenias to start. Something easy and peaceful. Definitely have the equipment and lighting to go further when comfortable. Main thing is not allowing the Xenias to take-over!

    ph is rising after cycling

    I was using a seneye and a API Master Kit. I've removed the Seneye and am installing a Milwaukee MC720. Just havent installed it yet but will report the difference to the seneye soon.

    ph is rising after cycling

    my ph is rising quickly after my cycle for a reason i cannot determine. Initally it was low so I added ph up which corrected it by .3. Now the ph is too high therefore i added white vinegar to lower it (this only worked for a few hours). I've since added an aerator since im skimmer-less. This...

    BLE AI Prime 16

    confirmed with AI. You cannot connect more than 1 device to BLE at a time.

    salinity

    At the moment i'm using the API Master Kit as well. Like you I want to have a backup or second opinion per say. When I was in the hobby years ago i used the same kit on a reef tank and I never lost a fish.

    salinity

    Thank you for the response, I removed the trim for 'marine tank' and it appears to be more accurate now. I also did a water change and dosed kalk as I believe I'm nearly if not already cycled but I am providing stats of my current readings if anyone has thoughts. Though I did a WC, I have no...

    BLE AI Prime 16

    Hey, anyone else seeing this issue...the AI Prime 16 only allows one device to be connected over bluetooth at a time. I tested this with a tablet mounted beside my tank, then my phone would no longer connect. Disabled BLE on the tablet and went back to my phone and it then connects. I've never...

    salinity

    if you dont mind i have a separate question. I got this seneye and i dont really trust it...it's reading my ph as 7.61 so since i'm at the end of my cycle i did the customary..70% or so water change. This changed my ph to 7.71. nh03 is 0.001 and nh4 went from 44 to 38. o2 is 8.3...something...

    ok, so the consensus seems to be 1.29 is not advised, thanks for the response.

    salinity

    my LFS told me 1.029 salinity was way too high, but I read in multiple places sea salinity in reefs is between 1.028-1.029...I keep my salinity at 1.025 but I wanted the communities thoughts on what my LFS told me. I asked them their salinity because I am going to buy a clown from them and...

    sea water?

    thanks, i read that as well. i dont have a boat so I most likely wont go this route...too many variables to factor. As you mentioned, testing the water just 100 yards from the shore had low salinity and runoff so I dont think the brackish water is worth the trouble to save a few dollars.
