| || | Ph problem due to driftwood
I have a130L tank with a parrot and tiger oscar. Parameters correct. Cannister filter and hang on mechanical filter. Never had any problems with the ph.
I have added a piece of driftwood and eversince are struggling to keep the Ph constant. No other changes in water parameters occured. Ph dropped from 7.4 to less than 6 within 2 days after adding the driftwood. Could this be the cause or should i look for some other causes? Is so what can I do to get the ph constant again? I do not want to constantly change the ph, must I take the wood out? Some advice please.
