I have set up a five gallon planted tank which has been running on a fishless cycle for 2 weeks. Everything seems to be at the right levels, except the PH. I have a relatively constant PH of 8.2 to 8.4, and I know that that is way to high for most fish. My tank isn't big enough for most fish that can cope with high levels like that (like African Cichlids), so I'm kind of stuck at what to do. I have put in some driftwood which might lower it, but then the treated water that I add during water changes would cause a PH swing, as the tapwater is at 8.4. I really want to get a betta, any advice on what to do?
