Hello!!! I was wondering could anybody help me with this conundrum please? Is there any product out there that might bring down the PH? Thanks alot!
Bogwood or any other driftwood deemed safe for your tank would be a natural way to reduce your ph level. I'm with Butterfly. I would not buy any chemicals to lower your ph. The bogwood would be an acceptable way to do it.
Thank you for the responses! I have been so focused this past month on keeping my tank cycled, doing pwc and otherwise general maintenance that when I decided to check the ph levels, was shocked that it was so high.
I was under the impression that certain fish and snails needed a certain level ph to sustain??? - I'm guessing since you all said they would "adapt" then the info I have is just a guideline because it seems difficult to maintain such parameters under normal circumstances.
So why do so many articles and such are bent on making sure ph is at a certain level? Is it just consistency that's more important?
I certainly don't want to jeopardize the health and well being of my fish.
I also do not have room for driftwood and don't like the idea of peat either.... Do you think moss balls and more plants would help, naturally?
