Hello everyone! My water has a high pH. The water in this area is very hard. I have a twenty gallon tank. When I first set it up the pH was 8.0. I added two pieces of Driftwood and the pH lowered to 7.8 but now it's back up to 8.0. I've been told that the pH doesn't matter too much so long as it doesn't fluctuate. But I see pH requirements for fish all the time so that makes me think it does matter. My current stock seems to be doing fine. A betta, bumblebee catfish that I never ever see unless it's feeding time, and a couple of ghost shrimp. However, I have a nice 55 gallon I will be setting up soon. I want to explore a few more species with it and so I would like to know if my high pH is something that will limit my stocking options? Here is a link to a pic of my twenty gallon. I couldn't upload because I use the app and my phone won't give it permission because of screen overlay or something? Anyway, pic!
