This allows the carbon dioxide in the aquarium water to reach equilibrium with the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, which normalizes pH. It also adds oxygen.
Thanks for the advice, if I'm going to add mew waterwith less sg
then in my tank what is a safe amount do to this.
The reason I'm lowering my sg
is from evaporation over time my tanks sg
has risen to 1.026 and I just don't want it to get to high
