I have been changing 50% weekly. I've upped to 80% on my 29g daily until I get it under control. Also changing my 10g every couple days.

What keeps driving my pH up?

The only common thing I can see between both tanks is the soil? It seems an issue for both tanks is what I was thinking.

Do you have any rocks in there?

Edit - just checking - the tap or well with a ph of 7, is that after it has been standing in a container to degas, etc for 24hrs?

The soil wasn't doing it for the first three months or so since I started the tanks. It may have absorbed something and/or finally started leaching (though my first couple of water changes were blackwater, did not check pH then).

PH stays 7 with the water sitting and filtering for weeks. I've kept a bucket running with a HOB and nothing else for a couple weeks before.

I did have a couple rocks early on but decided I didn't like them and soon removed them. No pH change. Admittedly, I belong in Old Scales's Wet Arm Society as I am always fiddling with my plants and stuff.

Pretty much down to suggesting aliens I'm afraid...
