Could someone please explain to me how your fish don't get shocked during water changes when you are using CO2? It seems that if it lowers the pH of the tank water, then you do say a 25% water change with your tap water of a higher pH, then it would shock your fish. How much does the pH change? I have a canister filter on my 15 gal. so this would work great for me, but I don't want to play around with my pH too much or hurt my fish. Thanks.
Because it is "safely" changing the water parameters. It is not altering the hardness or PH in an unsafe manor. Maybe others can explain better?
90gal: 2x Tangerine Discus, 2x Clown Pleco, 2x Catfish.
75gal + 10gal sump: 2x Large Goldfish, 1x Common Pleco, 14x Leopard Danios
55gal: 5x Angelfish, 1x Common Pleco, 8x SIlver Tip Tetras, 16x Neon Tetras, 8x Albino Corys
