Update Report For My 10 Gal.

I was up early this morning and decided to get a pH even though the tank lights were not on yet.

The color was green, instead of blue like it has been. That corresponds to neutral, 7.0. I wish it would stay that way until 10:30, when I usually take it. I know this is the CO2 talking. Normal pH at 10:30 is 7.6.

I just took a pH at 5:30pm and it was 6.8. It should have been higher than 7.0 instead of lower. Maybe the pH is dropping for some reason, maybe KH. I guess I'll just have to keep on getting pH and see what happens.

Thanks for your help Byron in this strange chain of events.

One has to let things establish biologically and often they will. Test the pH over a period of days or alternate days, always at basically the same time each day as you know, and for a couple weeks.
