Want to ensure I understand this correctly. At the start of the day, after the night, the pH is 6, and by the evening before the lights go out, it is 7? Do you have CO2 addition (diffusion)? And have you ever observed any reaction from the fish?

oops

sorry didnt mean to jack this thread but i am trying to breed some kribensis species and from my understanding they like a higher and stable PH...you are correct on the PH fluctuations being low in the morning and i dont add CO2 ...and as far as fish go no i have never noticed abnormal behaviour in my previous fishes in fact much breeding but i am aiming to get these newer kribs to do there thing and your opinion would be apreciated...

This question is best posted as a new thread under the fish-specific area, you'll be more likely to get more precise responses...

I agree on a new thread for the kribs issue. I had thought of moving our last few posts to a new thread, but some of the info was inter-connected and might leave the existing thread dangling so to speak, so I think it best to leave things here and continue on the krib question in a new thread. I'll leave that for you badxgillen to start, and I'll respond there to that issue.

I think the pH/oxygen issue is resolved here for the purposes of this thread, but if anyone has further questions on that, it can continue.

Byron.

Edit: Your last post came up when I posted, so to answer you, no, from what you have told me I do not consider it an issue. B.
