Petsmart did the liquid test yesterday and the pH was 8.XX. Went back today and bought the test kit and had them check the water. It came down overnight and was back into the 7s today. We bought the test kit today so I'll be watching it closly for awhile.
Also, what's the best timetable for water changes on a new tank? I've read all kinds of different advice on 25% weekly, 15% or only do it monthly.
