I put 2 pieces fo malayan drift wood in my 50 gal. In 2 days, it lowered the ph from 7.2 to 6.8. I had to take one piece out so my co2 system would work.

Wow this brings back memories. I used to live in Kitchener Ontario where the water is coming out of the tap at a ph of about 8.0 and it is super hard. (That water can clog a coffee machine in weeks).

I try keeping amazonian type fish but I woke up one day and saw the ligth. Choose the fish that fits the water.

I kept african cichlid which absolutely thrived in this water (lot of babies). Yes I know, kiss the plants goodbye but cichlids are so much fun to raise.

Just my 2 cents.
