    Re: 30 Gallon indoor system under vipar LED's

    So i havent updated in a while, but I finally decided to take some pics. The habaneros are growing like mad(a long with everything else.) I'm planning on doing a lot of trimming in the near future( as soon as i stop getting fruit) as i don't want to raise the lights any higher.

    I haven't really bothered with testing the levels in a long time, but have been checking the ph with a pen and having a tough time keeping it above 7. I've been adding A LOT of calcium hydroxide but the ph always seems to drop after a couple days right back down to 6.3-6.5.

    Your pH will begin to slowly drop after your system cycles. That will probably take 3 or 4 weeks until that starts to become evident If I were you, I wouldn't mess with trying to adjust it now. A pH of 8.2 is actually good for establishing the nitrifying bacteria in the cycling process.

    i have 9 regular goldfish 2 fancy, 2 koi, a pleco, and 2 loaches. I too had a ph situation when i first started the system and the only thing that brought it down was time.
