So I tested the pH with my new test kit, and poor betta boy's tank pH is 7.8!
I'm hoping to get his water down slowly to 7.2 or 7
His tank is a 3 gallon half-moon, only fake plants. I prepare his water in gallon jugs.
I bought some API pH DOWN today, but the instructions say 1/2 teaspoon to 25 gallons! I don't have a dropper or syringe to measure with... do I need to get one? How much should I use per single gallon (seriously, who makes their standard measurement as half teaspoons, or 25 gallons??) - and how do I measure this? I'm going to be putting it in his pre-treated water jugs, not pouring right into his tank, so I don't stress him too much.
Any advice here?
