Interested to hear what everyone says.
It is very normal for planted tanks to run high ph. As carbon dioxide is consumed by the plants pH rises. In my tanks both marine and fw I have a just before lights out pH of 8.4-8.8 (purple api high range test kit). Yet even fish like neon tetras and hacetfish "requiring" low ph of 7 or less, live for years and years.Hey guys,
I have had my 75g tank up & running for a month or so now, and have not been able to keep the Ph down. I have petrified wood & some plants in there, on top of Tractor Supply Black Diamond sand. I have researched this to death before I bought it, and read a TON of people say there were no problems, etc. However, no matter what I do, my Ph will not stay neutral.
Has anyone else run into this? Did I catch a bad batch?
