What would you use to increase a 6.5 ph to 7.0?According to seachem it potentially could (they don’t rule it out on their website), but there are other factors that contribute to algae growth besides phosphates such as excessive lighting, nitrates etc.
That depends on a few things:What would you use to increase a 6.5 ph to 7.0?
I just keep standard community fish and they’ve been fine but everyone else keep their fish at neutral ph.That depends on a few things:
Why do you want to increase the ph?
What fish do you keep?
What is your tap water ph?
Do you know your gh and kh?
A lot of people use a bag of crushed coral in the filter which slowly breaks down and increases gh, kh and therefore ph. But depending on the answers to the questions above that may or may not be necessary.
If they are fine, then I don’t see a compelling reason to change anything with the water chemistry. It would be helpful to know what species you have though.I just keep standard community fish and they’ve been fine but everyone else keep their fish at neutral ph.
