Well I checked with a liquid test and it does seem as if the PH is in the mid 6's.

How does one go about re-calibrating a Milwaukee PH digital probe?

Did just under a 5 gallon water change and replaced with pure RO/DI water and PH is down to 8-8.1 with a TDS of 179. Should I put peat in and do another water change in a few days?

The Eheim canister should be able to breakdown the ammonia. But my concern is will the Akadama leech anything or cause any spikes?

Other question I have is can I take out the CRS, place them in a bucket, remove the ADA aquasoil and replace with Akadama? Or will I need to cycle the take prior to putting the CRS back in?
