well I started cycling my 10 gallon last week and the ph seemed okay at first. Nothing in the cycle has started going anywhere yet,
except the PH level, the PH is at a scary 8.6-8.8!
I'm pretty sure it's still climbing up, but I dont know what's making it go up that high. I just tested my tap water and it came out at a 7.4-7.6 ph.
I'm using the API freshwater test master kit to test it.
I'm also using the pure ammonia method to cycle my tank. The type of ammonia I'm using is Pine Glo ammonia, it's suppose to be pure ammonia.
I'm thinking about maybe starting over on my cycle with new water
or else I might go collect some wood and put it in the tank so it'll hopefully help bring the PH level down.
So do you think I should start over or find a different way to bring it down??
