    Hello guys, I just established a new tank and this is my current parameters:
    Salinity 1.025
    Cal 440-450
    Mag 1310
    Kh 11.5
    Temp 24 c.
    Ph 7.7 stable

    I have noticed that my ph is considered low.
    Also my Kh is keep raising around 0.5-0.6 a day for the last two days.
    Do you guys have any advice to keep the number stable?
    I think that it is weird for Kh to increase as I didn’t dose it. I’m only dosing a very little amount of Calcium and Magnesium to keep the numbers.

    Since you just set up the tank, Dont worry about the numbers too much as long as they are in range.

    I would also stop dosing calcium and magnesium until you have the tank well established. You don't want to chase numbers. If things are reasonably within range, don't mess with trying to change them.
