Well I am about to punch my water in the face
I just checked , Ph 8.4 , dkh 14 - Calcium 460ppm, and magnesium is at 900. My bottle says keep at 1270! So can you tell me what the relatinship with dkh and magnesium is? I will start the addition of magnesium tonight. I have the 3 stage system starting likely on Monday, so I am sure all parameters will be adjusted, but I want to be on top of things so I know exactly what to do. What I am most confused on is the operation of my calcium reactor. I understand its center value and what it does, but can one control ph in the tank and dkh? In other words, can the calcium reactor affect the dkh due to the introduction of Co2? I am always finding my self with the question of bubble rate. Does that do anything other than burn time. My reactor is drilled on the bottom with a LED that turns on when the pinpoint reactor kicks it on so I can see the center tube illuminate. So it is constantly kicking on for a burn. I did that so I could see if it was ever stuck on, but it has been operating fine. I calibrate it every 2 weeks, and it was just recently done a week ago. So I take it the addition of the magnesium may solve my problem, or do I need to see a therapist - cuz its 3:17am.
