    treating a main tank was probably a recipe for disaster to begin with, why exactly did you treat your whole tank with prazipro?

    so your suspecting your pH has fluctuated in some way? have you tested for anything? what are your parameters, tank size, types of livestock etc...

    well your nitrates are a little on the high side, your pH could be lowered but isnt bad. Im not exactly sure why you think your tank is crashing? are you just overreacting? how does ones tank act like its going to crash. are your fish acting funny?

    Same question as red, what makes you think its crashing?

    i dont think prazipro has anything in it that can effect ph, its probably just dosing the prazipro period that had an adverse effect on your tank.

    again though i ask what kinda signs are you seeing that you think its crashing?

    the nitrates are a bit high but not to be of a concern to your fish .

    Are you dosing alk? That seems kind of high. You have sps or chalices? Again that just seems really high....

    Prazi pro will lower your ph. I've dosed it a couple times to clear up a fluke infestation. It had no ill effects on my reef.
