Hi everyone, a week ago I bought 5.5 pounds of Texas holey rock for my 10 gallon shell dweller tank to raise my pH. My water's pH is around 7.2 and I want to get it around 7.8-8.0 (higher would be even better).

I haven't really seen any increase in my pH levels over the past week. Does it take awhile for the rock to dissolve or something? I feel like I bought enough rock because it takes up quite a bit of the tank.

Hmm, if it's real holey rock (limestone), it should raise the pH to 8.2 or so.

Has the pH risen at all? If not, that's a little strange.

Are you sure it's really holey rock? Can you take a pic of it in your tank?
