    Hey MASA,

    Should I be concerned with the following parameters:
    Kh - 11.5 ALK 0.26meg/l

    Ph - 7.6

    I bought Red Sea Coralline Gro(wanted to boost my coralline growth), but I dont think I can use it because of my Kh being so high. Or am I wrong?

    I also have Aquavitro Balance to increase my Ph. I put 1 inner cap(7ml) into my tank last night and :eek: the liquid looked like jellyfish in my water! What happened there??? :eek:

    The more seasoned reefers may probably be thinking "oh this guiys AGAIN!:m107:" but I really want to do things right the 1st time before I put any corals/inverts in.

    Thank you in advance tho.
