Few questions about a saltwater tank.
Hey guys, I have 2 questions. I don't know much about saltwater tanks. My dad mostly takes care of "mine."
I recently asked on here about using lemon juice to kill aipstasia, so I went out and bought lemon juice in a bottle from walmart. I was kind of stupid and didn't test the PH of the aquarium water before. Anyways, afterwards the PH measured 7.7. I only used about 1.5 ml of lemon juice. (I had a measuring thing). It's a 29g nanocube, so I don't think that could affect the PH much? We purchase our saltwater, and the PH of the water we add is 8. So my question is, could the lemon juice affect the PH and what are some reasons the PH in the saltwater tank could be lowering so much? Is 7.7 PH an acceptable PH (I thought around 8 PH was what saltwater liked).
Next question is how much lemon juice can I use to kill the aipstasia without affecting the water?
Thanks guys. :) I'm going to try to learn some on saltwater tanks.
