How often do you guys use the buffer recipe? Do you just use it to initially start off your tank and then only for water changes or do you have to use and manage it daily, weekly to keep ph where you want it.

You only add buffer during each water change.

Thanks for the quick response. I was worried that since I decided to use pfs as a substrate and no coral in my filters that the buffer recipe would lose its strength over time.

It will lose KH over time, but not enough to worry about if you do regular water changes.

Remember to only add enough for the water you are replacing each time, not the whole tank. And if you have evaporation, just add regular declorinated water. I have been using the recipe for over a year with great results!
