UGH...I seemingly cannot get my alk to stabilize in my system. Picked up the Kamoer X1 in an attempt to help with this and its only made things worse in that my alk just keeps climbing (which is strange because i am auto dosing the same amount as manual dosing per day).

To my surprise, my SPS corals have not shown any signs of stress yet. And my alk is currently running on the high side at 12dKh....which is 3dKh higher then 'normal'.

All part of the fun challenges that come with this hobby

Are you still having Alk issues?

What are all of your tank readings from tests?
What are your maintenance procedures?
What are you dosing?

Tell us about everything you can think of

I managed to get my alkalinity back down around 9Dkh. But I kept it too high for too long while my nutrients got too low. So I experienced some setbacks on my SPS with stumped growth and some alk burn on some tips. It also looks like I will loose my Red Diablo, just hoping whats left of the tissue remains.

Things appear to be recovering right now and i am working on getting my nutrients (no3 and p4) up a little.

I will share some photos soon.

Luckily there has been no loss of fish, shrimp, hermits or snails so far so thats positive news.
