I don't understand the concern over pH crashes. Isn't it the 
conventional wisdom that pH doesn't really bother the fish one way or 
another within reason? Even if KH was only 5 ppm and your CO2 tank 
started spitting out at twice its usual rate, your pH would still be 
around 5.7 which is above levels found in many blackwater streams.
