Hi Lupin...
I am only freshwater... so the crushed corals etc can still apply?
I don't think I much understand about this water buffering?
I will check my param's before I put the log in today and will post them. Checking param's takes me like a half hour to complete...lol

Crushed corals will work fine. Buffering is in reference to the KH which influences the stability of the pH. If your KH is 3 and lower, then you need to somehow increase it as it is capable of causing your pH to fluctuate a lot thus stressing the aquarium inhabitants. You'll want the KH and GH test kts to determine the hardness levels.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
