Hey- thanks and no worries!!I have a large rock I put in mine. I made sure it was WAY too big to go down the pipe just in case.
Look in my siggy for the recommended chemicals. You will find there is some that help the TA without messing with the pH too much. I am SO I forgot to tell you about tanking the TA while working on the pH!!
I looked at the "recommended chemicals" link in regards to the pH and alkalinity; I only see that it says soda ash, aeration and borax. All will raise the pH, and borax will only raise TA a little but I need a lotta' TA.
Was there a different one you were referring to? I will keep poking around.
