^ Thanks. Anyway, when I went to bed last night/this morning about 8 hours ago, the Tang was doing fine along with everybody else that was left. However, this morning the Tang was back on its side completely dead and now my clown is doing the fast-breathing on the bottom. Sure enough the ph dropped out AGAIN and the alk was high. I added a good dose of buff and brought it into the safe range, but still high. I also added some ph 8.2 to try to bring it back up. I found a Seachem kit I had stashed and will get a better read on the alk shortly. BTW, the serpent star has completely separated and is DOA as well.
