So I tested GH and KH. GH: 3 KH:1
on the KH I never even saw blue first, the first drop was pale yellow.
I'm going to try the baking soda today and try and raise that a bit.
X fingers hope it works. It's very strange seeing petricola bobbing heads out of
the tank,if that's even the problem. They're 2 years or so old maybe it's just their time but not from what I read.

PS. my one female petricola that's left looks so heavy with eggs. Hopefully if the ph goes up she'll decide things are good and I'll have some petricola babies.
