Baking soda that i'm currently using to raise KH. I'm planning to raise 1 dKH per day until it reach to target range at 6 dKH.

Water Parameter Results as at 06/06/2006

Water Parameter readings are very stable and similar to previous readings at two weeks ago.

Ammonia, Nitrite & Nitrate = zero
GH= 5 dgh
KH= 3 dkh
PH=7.0
Temp = 29 C

Water drip rate may need to be adjusted to a slower rate to achieve 5-10 ppm for planted tank purpose. KH will be raised slightly and gradually using baking soda to about 6 dKH for CO2 injection purpose. GH will be raised gradually to 8 dGH with more crushed coral as current water may be too soft and with very little minerals. Hopefully with addition of baking soda and more crushed coral, PH swing will be minimal when CO2 is injected to about 15-20 ppm.
