    Help balancing

    I give up trying to balance on my own. Any help would be appreciated.
    FC=3
    Ph=7.6
    TA=250
    CH=200
    CYA=50
    I put 4lbs of stabilizer in yesterday.

    From memory, isn't a FC of 3ppm the absolute minimum required for a CYA of 50ppm? Definitely want to keep the FC a bit higher to have some buffer room.

    He has a SWG, so he gets to maintain it lower.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.

    Remember that your stabilizer won't show up in tests for about a week.
