Figured as much. Just curious if utilizing sodium bicarbonate for KH would be “killing too birds with one stone,” so to speak, in combating sodium adverse protozoa.
I’ve never had luck with Val’s no matter what water I put them in. I know they’re supposed to be pretty easy low tech plants, but I’ve never had much luck with them.
Going to try sodium bicarbonate and removing K2SO4. I was able to tweak my CO2 even higher today without any losses. Some of the lower wisteria was pearling for the first time. I believe I’m headed in the right direction here.
Thanks so much for the conversation and help. This is a great hobby and community.
Glad to hear that. Keep tweaking your CO2 to the absolute limit. I promise that you will notice even better effects as the CO2 level increases.
