    I wish mine were anywhere close to those numbers. I got up to 8.0 yesterday with windows open all day. Normally 7.6-7.85 daily ph. I have growth but feel like could be much better if I had higher numbers. I’ve used scrubbers before on the 300, it exhausted very quick tho a couple days at max. I will give it another shoot on this 90 maybe smaller skimmer will Not exhaust the media as quick. Maybe even run only during the night. .

    My carx is sitting in the garage. Wish I could use it. So easy to use, don’t have to worry about dosing and pure stability. But, I don’t have good gas exchange in my home and the carx lowers my ph too much. .

    Sweet tank Kirk! I miss my 300 Planet tank, I’m sure you’ll love it. Can’t wait to see what you do with it. .

    Just get a cartridge filter canister and two fittings from home depot to run some carbon in.

    The biological side on my tank shouldn’t have change. I used same rock only difference from this small tank and the 300 is no sand in the small tank. I’m perplexed. Only thing I can think of is quick swings in nutrients compared to the 300. I’ve chased pretty much every lead I can..going to get a slightly bigger tank to see if this helps. .

    Sweet sticks! Tank looks great. Hope you have better luck than I’m having with this small tank. .

    I'd be interested in a trade, just not sure where you're located and what you're looking for.
