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!!! :shock:

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?

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...
