Is this for bettas, Petsmart worker said my betta tank ph 6.4 need to raise ph up, I am thinking about the ph buffer.Joshaeus said:
This is for either wild bettas or (more likely) licorice gouramies...domestic bettas would likely be fine at that PH as long as it is stable. If you want to increase the PH anyway, do it slowly...increasing PH usually requires increasing another parameter, KH (carbonate hardness), and sudden changes of 2-3 degrees or more KH (about 36-54 ppm) are very stressful to fish and inverts alike.Petchratn said:
Hey, I just noticed you have a coke bottle filter! I built the same thing lol! (Not the tank I posted).Joshaeus said:
Oh my goodness!! Frankie is so cute!! Looks almost like my dearest Honey!! And that blackwater setup is absolutely stunning!!! But I've got a quick question...Are you able to make a heavily-planted blackwater? Most blackwater setups I see have little to no plants at all. Just making sure. Thanks!!MissNoodle said:Past the gross bacterial bloom, just coming into the fun biofilm stage.. lots of debris, but next water change should reduce that.
Water has darkened nicely to a golden red colour and Frankie is happy.
