lowering pH with home stuff. vingar? Question

    I have used white vinegar to lower pH for plants that I grew, but is it safe to lower pH for my 20 gal freshwater aquarium? will it harm my fish or my water plants?

    Hi wannj, is there a reasons you want to lower PH ? keeping a stable PH is more important.

    Personally I wouldn't alter the ph unless i absolutely had to. As Riv said a stable PH is much more important.

    ok, well I guess I thought I should because it is at 7.4 around, and I have some german rams who I researched prefer 5.0-7.0 but if its better to have a stable then ill keep it where it is. thanks
