Personally I would not use the buffer. Adding chemicals to adjust things is a bad idea. I would wait and see if it does not go down some with the driftwood. I think there are natural ways to reduce it to but I can't think of them right now maybe post a topic just on how to lower PH.

Kindest Regards,

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

55 gallon, 44 gallon, one 20 gallon tank, three 10 gallon tanks, and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I have MTS and there is no cure.

Alright. I'll see what happens and then act from there.

Are you going to add more plants? I have read you can add peat moss to the filter and that will help lower ph if I remember right you have to replace the peat moss ever so often but I am not sure how often. Or you could just do the really easy thing and chose fish that will do well at that ph. I think live bearers do well at a higher ph. I know sailfin mollys do well at 7.5 they may be ok at 8.

I plan on adding a lot more plants. Look at the first post.
But I have my heart set on getting at least a betta. >.<; And the cories are really winning me over.

LOL Trust me I totally understand loveing the bettas and the corys. I have 6 bettas and 15 corys between my tanks myself. Try posting a thread on how to lower your ph maybe someone else will have some more ideas.
