    Latest numbers

    TC: 2.0 (will add 192oz of bleach tonight)
    FC: 2.5
    CC: .5
    pH: 7.7 (will add couple cups of MA soon)
    TA: 260
    CYA: 0-20 (can still see black dot after adding 4lbs, however, the water in the view tube is cloudier by the day)

    Other suggestions? The water is looking great!

    Your TA level is fairly high. Is your PH constantly rising?

    Yes it is. Driving me nuts! I wish I knew why the TA is so high?

    Have you tested your fill water? TA will tend to be noticeably higher than the fill water unless you adjust it. Evaporation doesn't lower the TA level, and then replacing the lost water raises the TA level higher.

    When you have time, you should lower your TA level. See this article for directions on lowering TA.

    I have not. I will test the fill water tomorrow. I actually just found and read the lowering TA sticky. I will give what is suggested a shot.

    Am I looking ok otherwise? I am worried my FC will still be too low even after adding the two gal tonight. Isn't 5ppm the sweet spot?

    Your FC level is alright because your CYA is so low. A little higher would be nice but isn't critical. When your CYA level comes up some more you will want to raise the FC level more.
