So running a two bucket gig in a 2x4 ten. Cali 550 with controller,5.8 PH Lotus nutrients. Can I use potassium carbonate to 150 ppm to buffer? aerate for a couple hours then nutrients then PH? Or will this lock PH up in a week? I have tried to read everything possible about this but still feel unsure. I also want to switch to the Jacks 3,2,1 recipe I saw the Aquaman posted quite sometime ago! So I am curious if this will work with that as well.
