Help with PH levels
I have been reading and reading. The first thing I learned, was to not use chemicals to try to alter my PH level. My test strips only read PH of 8.2 or lower. I am getting the maximum of 8.2, and I have a tube test kit that only reads up to 7.6 (Maxes that test out as well).
I have angelfish, tetras, danios, and some corys, and I would like to maintain a PH level of about 7.
What are some natural ways for me to shoot for a lower ph level? I added a pretty good size of driftwood in my tank about a week ago, didn't really have an impact, not sure if it takes more time.
Anyways, does anyone know of any good natural methods of lowering and keeping a steady ph level?
