No baking soda. Filter media is just ceramic rings, foam pads, and filter floss for both tanks. And substrate is a mix of flora-max, playsand, florite, laterite, and plain gravel in the 38 gallon. And a mix of eco-complete and Tropic Isle Tahitian Moon Sand. None of the things in the substrate are supposed to affect the water chemistry.

I'll try to think more about this in the evening, but now I think I'l go skiing .
