How to Use Baking Soda (Sodium Bicarbonate) for a Fish Aquarium | eHow.com
i was wondering around the internet and found this article of baking soda used in fish tanks.
i was wondering if this is true thanks.
No, it does not. It works temporarily only.
To raise ph and kh, use limestone (Agricultural limestone is cheap at organic gardening stores).
Raising one and not the other won't do anything beneficial, and will stress your fish.
ok.... but one of my goldfish had ick.. i treated it with baking soda and eating salt non iodized... lol the goldfish look sick and i had too many goldfish anyway so i wanted to see what would happen.
i tried it and it work the ick is gone, btw the gold fish was in a separate tank when i was treating it.
Redchigh is correct. Long-term this is actually quite dangerous as a method of lowering pH, as I have explained at length in a couple of other threads.
How many fish?
Water parameters (including KH and GH)?
