Re: Aquatic Plants Digest V4 #1530

I have not noticed any problems with my discus when this happens.
My PH will go from 6.8 to 8.0 in about 24hrs. They still rub their noses on
the front glass looking for a handout.

I have water that comes from the tap at 8.6-8.7even mixing with R/O water
doesn't seem to help much. I also keep a handful of aragonite in the
overflow to help buffer and supply some calcium.

I guess I have been singled out when it comes to incomplete digests as no
one responded to my query on it.
