So, down to the LFS today and of course they have a beautiful 8ft reef set up (even my dad was in awe). I've been thinking about doing a reef tank for a while but never went into it further than looking at a few species. Today I did a bit more research and from what I found it seems like marine tanks like a higher pH, especially reef tanks with ideal conditions from 8 - 8.4. I've done and am still doing freshwater tanks and my pH is around the 6.8 mark. I know you have different test kits for fresh/salt but is pH the same? For example will the 6.8 fresh still be 6.8 saltwater? Sorry if this is a dumb question! I'm just wondering if a marine tank would be achievable pH wise and if you guys think it would be worth changing the pH and possibly keeping a saltwater tank.
