Seems like when I correct one param another gets out wack!!! After testing today my DKH is very high and +4 from testing just a week ago. I recently been dealing with adjusting newly added calcium reactor, switched salt (from coral Pro to D-D H2Ocean) first change done last week on bi-weekly scheedule, dosing Brightwell products: MB7, Replenish, Iodine, Strontium, and Vodka dosing on seven day 1ml.
Test Results:
Calcuim- 420ppm
DKH- 18
Mg- 1360ppm
Nitrates- 0
Phos- 0
Salinity- 1.026

How should I lower DKH?

Turn of the CO2 to the reactor and let the alk decline, then more slowly restart it once the alk declines to where you want it, and try to set the CO2 to keep the alk there.

Ok CO2 off and will test again every other day till it's down to 10.
