I knocked off my drop checker and the co2 indicator solution spilled inside the tank. Shall I be worried? I use a Cal Aqua nano drop checker with Cal Aqua indicator solution. The website says "The indicator solution is a combination of KH Standard / 4 degree KH (4 dKH) and pH indicator (Bromothymol Blue)" What is the effect of this solution spilling inside the tank??

:help:

it will be fine. The KH standard is just regular water that has the hardness adjusted and the pH indicator is only like 7 dropsor something so it will be very diluted.

I've spilled solution multiple times from my drop checker with no ill effect.

As others have mentioned, it should be no cause for alarm.

Of course, you can also do a partial water change (though it would really just be for the sake of doing a partial water change).

Thank you All. The response from GLA:

"Hi,


Thank you for your email. No worries on the spill in the tank. There are extremely small diluted amounts of bromo blue in the fluid. No worries.



Thanks,
Marco
