|Enter the details of your pond and receive a complete pond diagnosis||This is why even prolonged stress can lead to illness and even death and why under stressful conditions having ample reducers such as a constant supply of positively charged calcium ions or TRUE UVC sterilization is so important! Although less conclusive at this time, high PAR lighting usually found in lights with an approximate Kelvin of 6500 K , also aids in replenishing reducing electrons due to depleted reducing minerals|
|This leads to an unsafe drop in pH that can make the water toxic for fish and plants||This is also where water changes and UV Sterilization also help as these processes constantly balance out Redox|
|And just to confuse you more, you may also hear KH referred to as the following…• What could it be? This aspect of a UV Sterilizer is so often missed or even utilized by those who own a true UV Sterilizer but only run a UV after a problem has a occurred||I am not adding anything else to the tank|
|Well, these acids react with the crushed coral, causing it to release calcium and carbonate into your water, raising both the KH and GH||In aquariums, pH levels tend to drop over time, so when KH is raised, more acid is neutralized and pH tends to stay higher|
|Crushed coral can either be mixed in with your or placed in a and added to your filter||Increasing KH will also Increase pH, which is allready high|
|Fill the test tube with water from your aquarium and add chlorine test drops||Another concern of mine is i have tested all the bottled waters i can buy including the tap water and the one i use like the rest has 8|
|Addition of positive mineral ions in between water changes, especially during times of stress or high bio loads can increase the Redox Reduction to counter oxidative affects on fish||Carbonate hardness• My normal PH is on the high range anyways|
|Best of all, there is an alkalinity buffer designed to match exactly what you stock in your aquarium… Freshwater Tank Alkalinity Buffer Marine Tank Alkalinity Buffer Reef Tank Alkalinity Buffer There are even alkalinity buffers designed for specific species of fish, including…• Substances which have the ability to counteract active oxygen by supplying electrons are called scavengers||Calcium Bentonite is a natural clay formed from the weathering of volcanic ash in the presence of water and has the potential of adding essential mineral ions back into the water column|
|While both have the word hardness in their name, they measure different parameters of your water||Tested the KH again the next day and KH is still 16 dKH|
But is it really true? 2 degrees and a Tetra Whisper 20 filter using disposable filter cartridge with activated charcoal.
Shake it up and use 1 drop of the mixture for each 1 gallon of water in the tank.
I just have a quick question, I cannot for my life of me get me tank to cycle and I was told to check my KH.
Weekly water changes on a large tank can require a surprising amount of water.
I did not see and appreciable difference.
Hi Steven, Yes, you are correct with your thinking.
Thank you very much Mert Hi Ian, You are right to be confused, since English is not my mother tongue, i might have done some mistakes in writing.
Also, your beneficial bacteria lives in your filter.
50 nitrite anything from 2 to 4 nitrate 10 light copper colour the ph is 6.
