One last question, if anyone can help with it. I do not dose the CSM+B and instead use the flourish comprehensive. I've been adding about 2.5 mL 3xweekly. Is this an ok amount, too much, too little?

Is the top difficult to latch on? If it is a little stiff putting the latch down, something along the way isn't seated properly.

If my kH and gH are high though won't they just buffer the new water that is being put in the tank or do I need to replace 50% or more of the water to get things to drop?
