UGH!!! just realized that i should have tested pH today as well!!! I guess i will have to assume my ph was the same as it was last week, and test it again tomorrow. not that 4tsp will have a huge effect in 24 hours

You also make a blurry cameo in the whole tank picture! lol! Seeing that one white spot on the front of the tank with the angels in the back REALLY brings just how large they are into perspective. That is a MASSIVE snail!!!

How are the pH and GH levels today?

It looks to be.about 6.4 pH today, less than 7.4 high range pH. gh waz 2 again. and kh was 1 again. tossed cucumber in, the mts have swarmed to it, and two of my yellows seem to have discovered it too. one white spot was headed for it, but i moved it when i was fixing some plants.

Izzy, when do you think i should add more coral? a week or two?

I would throw in another 4 tablespoons. It's really just a guessing game to see how much you need to get in there to raise the GH and pH by what you want. You can always pull coral out if you think it's too high.

You might have to get it up to a cup before you see any big difference. Not even a pH change thusfar?
