Alkalinity: How does it work?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I have been dosing Aquaforest Components 123 to raise Ca, Alk and Mg. On the first 2 days of dose, there is clear consumption as alk drops, however, after 2 days, the alk raised from 9 to 12. I assume there is no consumption. Any ideas guys?

Measure alkalinity at the same time each day is a good practice and I believe heavy carbon dosing  and adding a lot of bio pellets at once can also raise alkalinity based on my experiences
