I did notice my PH had dropped a little...it had been about 8.2 the last time I tested, and now is...

    If I only do water changes approx. once a month, should I pay any attention to the magnesium levels in my tank? Or any other trace elements? I am dosing the two part B-Ionic supplement to maintain Calcium and Alk levels. Does the B-Ionic also replenish trace elements? Thanks, Sean
