I wonder if someone know the answer. There are so many articles but still..
I get from from reefer's experiences, different answers. But I really would like to know having low dKH is a cause of concern. I have various soft corals and just three fish 2 common clown and six strip wrasse. All other water parameters are in ideal range except dKH just below 5.
I know the ideal dKH range is between 8-9 but I haven't seen any downside in my tank. dKH is reading 5 for almost a year now. Tank is stable, croaks are growing. Fish are healthy.
Earlier, I guess around a year from now, I tried to higher dKH but since that was showing other side effects like algae problems etc I kind of left it things on its own. I do water changes but not so frequently and I don't over feed so 0 phosphate.
I appreciate everyone has different experience. Would like to hear what you guys think of this and do you think I should increase dKH?
