Malachite Green and PH??
Can the use of Malachite Green raise the PH in an aquarium?
I am using aqua soil in a couple of tanks which lowered the PH to a stable 6.5/7.0. But a tank that I am treating (currently with malachite green) has a PH of over 7.2.
The only difference between the tanks is the one with PH 7.2 has river stones and more intense lighting. They all use aqua soil.
Just interested to see if it is the medicine effecting this or something else.. because it isn't ideal.
I did a water change yesterday and the PH is about the same out of the tap. This could be it. I just assumed the PH wouldn't have changed that dramatically.
The fish seem better now so I will do my last water change in a few days to take some of the meds out and then do a partial fortnightly and will monitor the levels.
