Well let me say this, I read a artical about raising ph and it helps with green alge. I dosed enough to make all the inverts go in to a coma:( so i started to do water changes twice a week of about 20 gallons at a time and the inverts came back to life. Any body have any info on this.I have learned a good leson about messing with the nature of things.

The buffer likely drove your alk through the roof.

Sudden change is never good for our reefs.

Kalk, by itself, is a fine way to keep pH in check. Also more aeration with fresher air sometimes helps.

Glad you caught it in time. :)

Water changes are about all you can do. I'd also test for ammonia, just in case.
