I NEED to bring my ph up, help?
(because I have no bettas, and the tank concerned is for my harlequins, this is where it is... :P )
I don't know what happened, but my tank's water chemistry has decided to partially die on me. It went from Ph: 6.8, am:0 nitri: 0 nitra:5 to * ph: 6.0 ammonia: 2.5, nitri: 0, nitrA: greater than 0, less than 5. The changes occured really quickly, practically over night, and I don't have a freaking clue what the heck made it like that! (though I'm thinking the water from the water company is being stupid)
My tap water straight from the faucet is ph 7.4, ammonia 0, nitri 0, nitra: 0 .... go figure. even with water changes the tank's ph still remains at 6.0 if not less! the test doesn't go further than that, but I have a sneaky suspicion it is lower >.<
Does any one know a reliable product that will increase my ph for the time being? I hate putting things in my aquarium that messes with the chemistry, but I DON'T trust myself with an at home DIY fix, so the lesser of the two evils is to buy something :P (besides, how much more messed up could my water chemistry get?!)
