FSS is fine. It buffers the PH down to 6.6-6.8. My tap water is 7.6 or so.

No Planaria - water change

How much of a water change should I do after dosing No Planaria for the three day period?

I will be reintroducing three nerites back into my tank after the water change.
Tank has some CRS and RCS.
