Hi there, all. I recently posted elsewhere about my betta Jippers and how he is beginning to go blind (most likely cause is old age), and discovered that I really need to be keeping my pH at a steady level, which it hasn't been.
I live in the country on well water, which I have been using in my aquariums for the duration of time that I've had them (about 9 months). The pH right out of the tap is 6, clearly very acidic. Over time it changes in my aquariums (I'm not familiar with how), and in my boy's tank right now it's 7.2. Obviously this is a very drastic change.
I was wondering, what methods would you guys recommend for keeping the pH stable, and where would you recommend that I try to keep it (7?)? Should I switch to a different kind of water? Thank you!
