KH, pH, and co2 relationship
In the relationship between KH, pH, and co2:
which is the most dependent variable? I assume it is pH, correct? The 2 variables that I can control are co2 and KH. co2 is a constant depending on, obviously, the amount of co2 I am pumping into the tank. And I can increase and decrease KH by adding to the buffering capacity (with crushed coral, or other agents). Therefore if I consider my pH to be too low, is the best idea to increase my KH, and then through water changes get my pH back up to near 7.0?
Please let me know what flaws are in this analysis, if any. My pH is sitting at 6.4 right now, and I need to start increasing it. and then to keep it consistent.
