I have had several interesting nights in the past three months. First my Nitrate was over a hundred, then I put in Ammonia trying to cycle the tank and ended up again with more Nitrate than I wanted. Now I have too many TDS that I'm trying to get out. Sometimes if something is only a little too high I'll let it go until the next water change and just not dose it. The TDS problem is going to take several weeks of aggressive water management to fix.So for anyone who’ ever stumbles upon this thread, do not put that much cal/mag in your tank.
The instructions said 3-5ml per gallon. Well I took the conservative 3 x my 55 gallons and as I was pouring the 165ml, I decided to stop at 50 because that’s just a lot. So glad I did.
An hour later I’m 20 drops into my gh test and I realize it’s time for a big water change. 50ml was way too damn much!
It’s gonna be an interesting night!
