I agree - I use Robertsons or Buffalo...You can get bicarb at Spar or Pick n Pay, i use the Robertsons.
Good advice. If your pH is on the high side (8.3 - 8.4) you can use it "as is", mixed with RO water in a ratio of not more than 8 teaspoons per liter of water (more will not dissolve easily).Dont add too quickly i mix with ro and then drip it into the system.
One thing some newbie reef keepers don't realize is that pH "naturally" swings over the course of the day. It's perfectly normal/healthy for your pH to peak at 8.6 in the middle of your photoperiod (your artificial "noon") and then dip down to 8.2 in the middle of the night.What happens if the ph is too high, lets say 8.6 or so, what happens to corals/fish?
