Landen Aqua Soil PH levels

JALB

Does anyone know if Landan aqua soil lowers PH? Im cycling my new 20g Long with plants and testing with my API master test kit. Its currently reading zero ph. I Also have lots of dragon stone with a couple pieces of slate. My cycled 5 gallon is around 7.5 and my tap is 7.0. Thanks in advance.

Holy Cow! It's at zero?! Sure your testing is accurate? Maybe the strips are expired or something. That's the most potent acid! That would burn through everything! I'd try adding baking soda to fix it. Here's an article I found on it. Changing your pH | pH Forum | 28528

thanks.. It was that the test kit was bad. I got a new one and it was 6.0. added the baking soda slowly to now its reading 7.5. This is my second tank but used different medium so thought it could have been the landan aqua soil. Currently going threw an algae bloom lol, hoping to get my guppies transferred soon.
