Thread: Question about TA

    Question about TA

    My TA is 140
    PH 7.2
    FC 8ppm
    CC: 0
    CYA: 30-40
    CH: 140

    So I know I need to increase CH, which I am going to tomorrow. My FC is coming down from shocking and looking good. So now I have a bit high TA and low PH. I know the main thing to do here is aerate, but my question is do I need to lower TA to 90 or is this OK? Just adjust PH and see how it goes? I don't really have anything to aerate with right now, so I am wondering. Otherwise I guess I need to buy a fountain. What is the main downside of TS in this range of 140?

    Leave it alone and see what develops. It'll probably be fine and will s-l-o-w-ly come down on it's own.

    Your PH is fine where it is. If it goes any lower, raise it. But chances are it will tend to come up.
