I just started testing my water recently. Straight untreated tap water Ph. is 8.0
After being in the tank for a week it reads 6.0
After a 50% wc I got 7.4
Should the Ph drop like that? I'm wanting to do a fish-in cycle soon. How will Ph affect the cycle process?
It's a 5.5gal. Top-Fin glass tank with four silk plants, top fin polished pebbles gravel, and a top fin small bridge decoration that the tag said was made of concrete.
I'm using the API master test kit. The one with the liquid drops and test tubes.
