Anyway I have it sitting there right now anyway to see first what it does how it changed in the bucket itself over the next few days. I wanna have all my bases covered BEFORE I go close to my tank with this need of increase there.
I've tried it.
Over the course of a couple days I ended up adding a TBSP and a half to my guppy tank to bring it from 6.0 to 7.2.
A week later I was testing nitrates, and noticed the PH was 6 again. I never used it after that.
