Hi,

I am currently using kalk but would like to switch due to variable evaporation so want more stability using a 3 part that i can dial in.

Im currently using a diy nopox for nitrates and gfo for phos. I do 140lt of nsw changes every 2 weeks on a 520lt system.

Can i use component 1,2,3 with my method above. I would also like to know if your system maintains a stable ph in a reef or will i have to vent in fresh air if my ph drops. Kalk keeps it currently in the 8.3 range when evaporation is stable.

Thanks

You can use the components 1,2,3

The stability of PH is highly variable due to environmental conditions. Most likely excess CO2 in your system. Aquaforest makes a product called AF Build that will help with the PH stability.

There are many different ways to deal with PH issues. Stability is more important than a number IMHO. To flat out answer if you'll need to vent with fresh air , I have no idea. [emoji4] Every tank is different.
