  4. Hi everyone. I've been having some problems with low alkalinity over the past while (a month? Two months?), and have been posting about it on my build thread, but it's time to get a wider spread of opinions on this. My tank is a 2.5 year old biocube 29, biweekly water changes of 16l with RSCP. The tank has softies, LPS, and several types of macro. I tested alk a while back and it was at either 5 or 6 (can't remember). Oddly enough my coral all looked fine because it was stable I guess. The trend became that I would do a water change which would raise it 1dkh, and by the next water change (a week later, I upped my schedule to weekly from bi-weekly to try and keep up with demand) it would have dropped 1dkh. It was clear that water changes wouldn't be enough to keep alk up so I ordered Seachem Reef Builder to begin dosing. I measured consumption for a week and came back with 0.2dkh/day. I raised my alk to 7, and planned to dose the 0.2dkh/day to maintain it. Alk started dropping faster once it was at 7 though, so I started dosing more to make up for the new daily loss. @stellablue suggested that I keep alk at 8-9 for my LPS, so I raised it to 9. Now here's where it gets kind of weird. It started dropping really fast. Between doses I'm sometimes losing up to 1dkh. I don't think that's from the corals, it's maybe 50% LPS (not even probably). I just ordered a salifert Mg test kit and Kent Tech M (in case I need to dose) which should arrive next week. In the meantime I'm letting alk fall a bit everyday because the higher I keep it the faster it drops and the swings are really pissing things off (like to death ). Does this sound like a magnesium problem or something else? I forgot to add that my calcium seems to stay stable at 425-435, although I haven't tested it in a week or two. I can do that when I get home (out of town until Monday). I wasn't dosing for calcium because it wasn't dropping, but it was brought to my attention by @teenyreef that I should be dosing for both, so when the alk thing is sorted out I'll see where my levels are at and figure out how to dose. Thanks for the help
