On the API test kit, use both the pH ranges, high and low if you have the master test kit. I have 3 africian tanks and all of them are at pH 7.4 - 7.6 which is near perfect for them.
Tazman, I have been reading over you other posts and I think I might be in trouble...to many fish in the tank...we have 10 fish in the tank now, the tank is 20 gallons and I have no clue what cichlids I have. I just wanted to buy some fish for the family and I think I might have over done it, but no one at the store told me otherwise!!! We have two yellow with extremely faint vertical stripes. One baby blue with dark blue outer line on fins. Two solid orange. One yellow with black horizontal line down length of fish. One yellow and black vertical striped. Two dark blue and light blue vertical striped fish, and one blue with faint vertical stripes with bright yellow tips on fins.
So, now what do I do?
