I guess I messed that part! Sorry.

Leaving them floating is good too!

So in the future if you get any more stem plants just keep that in mind about how to plant them and you will be good.

just the water in general is a 8.4 I was wondering if it limits me as to what type of fish I could put in it or if there was a way to lower it. Ive read alot about fish here and it seems that most are comfortable at 7.0 to about 7.8 so 8.4 seems high.

That is kind of high yes. But there are some fish that would love that level. Liverbearers for one will doo good in those numbers. As for lowing it it can be done but its work. Do you know what you GH and KH are?

No need unless you plan to lower you ph. You can call your local water company and they can give you those numbers. Some even have them posted on their website if they have one.

not really, I wouldnt mind it to be lower. I do have some large rocks in the tank and I have read that they could raise the ph. So I will remove them and check again later.

Some can depending what type of rocks they are. Another thing you can do is test your tap water too see what it is. Take a glass of water and let it sit for about 24hrs and then test it. That way the gases come out and you get a true reading of Ph on it. If its still that high then you know its not the rocks. If it is lower then it is something in your tank making it go higher.
