I am wanting to put a pair of angelfish in my 30 gallon, but my pH is steady at 8.0. Any ideas on how to get it down in order for me to get angelfish?
You can try driftwood, peat granules, peat moss, almond leaves, RO/distilled water.
Do not use chemicals (pH down and stuff). Better yet, do not use anything. Just slowly acclimate them to the new water.
If they are wild caught or you intend to breed them, I would pay more attention to water hardness rather than pH.
PH changing chemicals are dangerous, unnecessary and not recommended.You can buy a special Ph down chemical if you really want
Do you have a suggestion of how to slowly acclimate them? Like a good drip method and how to set it up?
