question about my water parameters
Mty tank has now been set up for 2 days. After my 90% water change yesterday and then turning on the filter/heater the water is much much clearer.
I added the correct amount of water ager to remove chlorines etc and was now not going to change the water until after i complete a fishless cycle.
I tested my water this morning and here is the results.
Temp: 26 C, ie. 78.8 F
ph:8 (This I am worried about, my tap water has a pH of only 7-7.2 so im not sure what has caused this increase.)
Becasue i want to keep neons amongst other fish this pH is way too high (i think)
Any ideas what has caused this increase? would it be the water conditioner? or maybe the rocks or filter.
How can i get the pH down?
