While I was pregnant and feeling sick I totally neglected my aquarium. The java moss is taking over the entire thing and only two mollies are alive in there.
My aquarium is a 30 gallon hex.
I tested the water today. The pH is 60 mg/L. The GH is 220 mg/L Ca CO3.
According to the booklet the GH is off of the hardness scale and the pH is a little low?
This has happened in the past and I went to my local fish store with water samples and they told me exactly what to do to fix it. Our area has very hard water and while I was pregnant tap water (dechlorinated of course) got added to the tank. I normally buy reverse osmosis water to put in instead. Our LFS closed down due to the economy, so now I can't get any real life help! I wouldn't bother asking Petsmart...
I have a bottle of Kent Freshwater pH Stable that the LFS sold me a few years ago. I'm not sure if this is the correct thing to use now or how much to add. I don't want to mess it up any further!
Side note--I'm planning on ripping out most of the java moss soon, if that will make a difference in the water treatment or the tank cycle. There are a couple other small plants in there also that will stay...
