I think that makes the Ph a bit high, but wonder if it makes more sense to just monitor until the fish have been in the tank for more than a few days. (I suppose I could measure the Ph of tap water to see what our water supply is...)
Advice for a newbie? Thx.
- Absolutely measure the tap water. The pH will not go any lower than your tap without a lot of chemical addition that are stressful to your fish. Playing with dynamite is less dangerous than playing with the pH in an aquarium, You are asking for a pH crash which will probably destroy your tank.
