Update Report For My 10 Gal.
There's a lot going on in my tank, and I have a couple of questions before I get to the nitty gritty. I put Equilibrium in the tank, following directions.. Before, my GH was 1 or less - now it's 6 dGH. I was shooting for five but the half-tablespoon must have been off. That's not so bad, but my KH is unaffected at 2 dkh now, and pH is 7.8 from 6.6- I tested it 3 times!. I plan to change 25% of the water and see if that helps. Maybe someone could tell me why the pH is so high.
Ok, the biggest change was the Equilbrium. Besides that, I bought some Cabomba and some Water Sprite and 2 Pristella Tetras - I'm going to buy 5 more.. My plants have seemed to like the Equilibrium TheTetras setled in pretty well, and aren't dead because of the pH change. I found a filament of Java Moss and put it at the base of the wood. I threw in 2 or3 pieces of gravel to hold it down.
I'm a little concerned about everyone getting enough light, but I guess sometimes that's the way it goes. I don't think anyone's dying.
Well, I guess that's the update. I wish you all success and healthy and beautiful aquaria.
