I used a dose of the PH down from API. Probably won't be using anymore of the stuff.
Not because of any quality issues, but due to advice received from the Forum.
AMMONIA = 0.25 ppm
NITRITE = 0.25 ppm to 0.50 ppm ( Color of sample could have been debated as to which it was closest )
NITRATE = 0 ppm
Established 10 Gallon
PH = 7.8 ( Tested last night at 7.8 as well )
AMMONIA = 0 to 0.25 ppm ( Leaning towards 0 )
NITRITE = 0 ppm
NITRATE = 5 to 10 ppm
PH = 7.8
(Other tests not performed)
Could not obtain data due to lack of sample (It's purchased from the local grocery store which is closed at the moment)
This water source is Reverse-Osmosis and/or Distilled water. I recently purchased 5 gallon water jugs with handles. This works great and seems to be good water to use. (Will Cost $5 every water change)
I see nothing unusual in the pH numbers here.
Be careful with buying water, some of it is worse than tap water for minerals and TDS. As Nilet asked, is there a reason for this water being used?
