I have an issue maintaining my KH and Calc. Even though I am dosing via Kalkwasser I still have to dose Buffer from time to time. For some reason my system hovers around 7-8 KH. Not a real issue but I would like to see it closer to the 8-9 range.
As mentioned by others, it seams that once I get my softies happy then my SPS
takes a hit and visa versa.
Now I do have a well established "Grown In" looking Reef so I often wonder as the corals get closer together what kind of chemical exchanges are happening? I have upped my usage of Carbon to aid in the removal of toxins but I am beginning to wonder if I am slowly falling behind
I currently am using 2 cups of Lignite Aquarium Carbon (BRS) in a 200 gallon system and I change it out every 2 months. Thoughts on using more or changing it out more often?
Anyone have any thoughts about our softie/leathers chemically fighting for space? How are you going about countering this....Carbon, water changes, etc....
