To my knowledge, corals don't like rapid change in any parameter. I'd try to eliminate any bounce in anything to do with water, though I can't point to any specifics regarding ph. I'd *think* that it might affect the condition/penetrability of their 'skin,' making it more or less vulnerable to bacteria, etc, but that's only guesswork. The more 24/7 any 'good' situation is, the more corals are going to settle down and do their thing: I think that's safe to say.


Salinity 1.024-6; alkalinity 8.3-9.3 on KH scale; calcium 420; magnesium 1300, temp 78-80, nitrate .2. Ammonia 0. No filters: lps tank. Alk and cal won't rise if mg is low.

Current Tank Info: 105g AquaVim wedge, chromis, royal gramma basslet, tailspot blenny, ocellaris clown, yellow watchman, chestnut turbo snails, bristleworms, couple of hermits.
