follow up questions...now that it has been a week or so since adding crushed coral and doing numerous water changes my pH is staying right at about 7.2, but KH is only up to about 2 drops...tap water is about 4 or 5 drops....can the coral be exhausted? or should i give it more time?

You can add a little more crushed coral and then test again several days later. My KH didn't go up at all after a week but my GH did go up 2 drops so I'm thinking it just takes a bit of time or a little more is needed.
