PH level high?
Hi, its plumkin I was just doing ph testing on my fish tanks and the one 30gallon tank with my paired angels the color is DARK blue i look on the cart and there is no ph level that high the highest one it 7.4 I've never put sodium biphosphate in my tanks because my ph level was never this high.. I dont want to harm my fish at all or kill them.. What should I do?

Leave it, fish can adapt to a wide range of ph levels but if you start messing with it the constant fluctuation in ph will harm them.

Good luck

I generally agree with previous member, but would like some more info as you could have a problem on your hands.

Is this something unusual, such as suddenly? And what is the normal pH in this tank. And what is your tap water pH. Also, are there any calcareous substances like gravel or rocks made from limestone, marble, coral, lava in the tank? And what are the fish?

Knowing this info will help to assess if this is a cause for concern and action or not.
