Hi Oldman...checked my tanks today after adding the coral pieces given to me by the lfs on Sunday. My ph in both endler tanks has gone up by .2 (I figured that with the low gh and kh in both tanks it was wise to add it to each tank).
My gh was 3 in both tanks when I tested today (an increase of 2 since Sunday morning). The kh was a 2 in one tank and a 3 in the other (perhaps due to water volume...but either way, still an increase there as well). So, I think I am acheiving a slow creep in numbers. I did another water change today just to make sure that ther numbers don't go flying off the charts.
I have not seen any changes in behavior of my endlers or pygmy cories as of yet...perhaps because as you say, it goes slower with the coral than with baking soda or chemicals and they can adapt better (so behavioral changes might be slower to see as well?).
I really am grateful for all of the knowledge and experience you are all sharing with me. I am hoping to incorporate the wisdom into my fishkeeping to make my son and I better fishkeepers.
