Idk. There might have been the slightest change but it wasn't much. today i did a ten gallon water change, added a bunch more coral (gotta be at least a half cup in there now) and a couple of pinches of the clay stuff (i promise i will look at the name tonight lol). i might start making treats soon.

I put coral/shells that I collected from the caribbean in my tank - PH is 7.8 or so. No idea what the other reading are though. It took quite a bit of full sized shells/and small coral pieces to get it to that level. I've actually been taking out a peice or two every so often. I'm sure the bettas are fine with that but I have no idea what clown plecos like.

I would guess there is maybe 2-3 cups of coral/shells in there? Maybe..not really sure how big a cup is or how much coral would fill it...
