How to bring Alk down?

Not getting a response on the chem forum so will try here. My alk shot up to 16. What can I add to bring it back down?

Interesting, you have any idea why it shot up? Probably doing some water changes is your best method.

You got a response on that forum from Bertoni. If you don't like his response tell him.

You waited a whopping 12 minutes before deciding to go cross post. Come on guy. Have a little bit of patience.

And a big +1 to the answer bertoni gave you on the Chem board. It is spot on.
