I add NaHCO3 to try to prevent drastic pH swings and keep pH from dropping too low. I also add a little water hardener each week, just enough to make sure the water is mineralized since I've got soft water here. Idk if assassins need a particular amount of Ca in the water. If it's simply that they don't do well in low pH, then Idk that there's much I can do about that...
