Is there any other way to raise the KH besides using Baking Soda? One that will not affect PH? I have a Excel tank that has a PH of 8.1 and adding NaHCO3 will make my ph even higher? KH in said tank is 3 and GH is 12. Tap water has PH of 8.0 and KH of 4 and GH of 5. I already use GH booster so what are my options for KH without raising PH even higher?? or does a PH this high matter??
Excel is dosed per bottle 1 ML per 10 gal every day and more on WC day. WC is once a month and running 1/3 of EI and TMG for traces.
1/3 of EI (KNO3, PO4) per week
Traces 5 ML TMG 2x week
1/8 tsp gh bootser after WC
