Day 9:

Ph: 7.9

Ammonia: 2

Nitrites: .25

Nitrates: 25

 

So no change. If I squint really hard and apply some wishful thinking, the ammonia might be a little lower, and the nitrites and nitrates might be a teeny bit higher.

Hi Teeny, had a quick question for you.. what do you keep your alk at? i am using blue bucket and dosing ATI Essentials. Dhk hangs around 8.5 or so. My Ph is always bouncing around and is chronically low. I'm not chasing numbers here, but Ph swings from 7.65 <-> 7.9... i was considering increasing the dosage of ATI #1 but one of the things highlighted by some research showed the main difference of soda ash vs sodium bicarbonate is the effect on Ph. Now I'm wondering if ATI #1 is using sodium bicarbonate to raise Alk and if, instead of increasing ATI#1 i should just dose Sodas Ash separately or through ATO... any thoughts? whats your experience with that?
