    Do I need to raise my TA?

    Here are my numbers from this morning. I think my FC will fall by night time, but is it OK for to it be that high? I know I should lower my PH, but do I need to adjust the TA?

    FC 6.5
    TC 6.5
    PH 7.8
    TA 90
    CYA 70

    Thank you for all your help! Nancy

    Your TA is fine. It can even be a bit lower.

    With your CYA at 70, 6.5 is fine. Check the cya chart for your target level, and your minimum. Don't let it drop below minimum.

    With your SWG adjust your output to maintain your FC between 3-5 ppm. Make small adjustments and give it a few days for the levels to stabilize each time you make an adjustment. 6.5 is a bit higher than you need but it won't hurt anything in the short run and it's certainly swimmable.
