    If some important parameters suddenly go out and can be life threatening, do what Anthony Calfo says:

    "Dilution is the solution to polution" ;)

    in other words, do an emergency water change and then smaller water changes there after maybe a few days apart. Always have saltwater ready incase of emergency.
    Just by practicing good husbandry by not overfeeding and doing 10% weekly water changes your parameters should be stable. I test my water weekly for all other parameters and check my pH and temp daily. I also record all finding in a diary.
