Under aquarium-conditions the carbonate will partly change to
hydrogencabonate until their relation reach a stable state, depend on
concentration of carbonate and CO2. 

BTW: Lamprichtys does not *need* pH 9. Even for breeding a pH about
7.5 to 8 ist sufficient. Very import as a very low NO3-Concentration.
