Hi everyone! I'd love your thoughts on my numbers just to see if I'm on track.
CYA < 20
Temp 77 (new heater going as of Sat--hooray!)
New Quartz plaster on 5/20.
I finally beat the PH down to 7.8 after adding almost 2 gallons of muriatic acid (31.45 %) relentlessly over the course of two weeks.
I'm adding stabilizer via suspended stocking in skimmer and although the black dot is getting cloudier in the test tube I can still see it when the tube is full, so I know it's coming up, just not there yet.
My TA has risen 10 points over these two weeks. Calcium has come up 20 points in the same time, and I expect it to keep rising.
Should I try and keep my PH lower than 7.8--or is that ok for now?
thanks in advance
