PH/KH problems need help.
i moved my freshwater 40 gal 4 months ago. i used the same rocks and about 1-2 inches of the original water. i let it run to cycle. i have been testing the water and been having trouble getting it balanced. my test are: PH less than 6, NO2- 0, NO3- 80, NH3/NH4- 0, and my KH is 0. i tested my tap water and PH is 8.2 and again i am getting a KH of 0. for the fish i plan on putting in the tank i require a ph of 7, and a KH of 6-8. i have tried water changes, neutral regulators and ph up, with no joy on raising the ph or KH. any help would be appreciated
I think the problem is that you're using chemicals to change you ph. Those seem to cause more problems than they're worth. I believe the lower the kh, which low kh can cause ph swings? And already being at 0, that might be why it is lowering so much?
this thread was moved to aquarium equipment. this section is for saltwater water quality. sorry
