Any ideas on what I can do to raise pH? My cal is 460 and Alk is 10 so I don't want to do anything to raise those either.
You could still use a little kalk mixed up and dripped in very slowly. People have done for that a long time or a supplemental dosage. Get a jug, mix it up, insert an airline tube(off the bottom), and start a siphon. Then tie off the airline tub siphon so it very slowly drips. Alk may go up slightly but the pH will increase even more especially if combined with the CO2 scrubber mentioned in that other thread.
