I am bringing my CYA up to 75 or so for the swg. I added some CYA to a sock in the skimmer and it is completely dissolved for 3 days now. My CYA reading is still 60. I don't want to overdo the CYA, but want to make sure I have enough and also that my FC levels are correct for the amount I have.
How many days after the CYA has dissolved (its been 3 going on 4 days now) will my reading be accurate?
How anal should I be about getting that CYA up before turning on the new SWG?
Do I let the FC fall before turning on the SWG? If I do will I risk an algea outbreak as the FC will be too low for the current CYA until the SWG is turned on?
AACH! I'm making my self crazy!
