This is my tank results this morning. Nitrate I have to work on by substrate vacuuming and more partial water changes (just bought an RODI
filter) so changes are going to be a lot easier and safer.
My question is should I hold my test tubes up at the light or hold the test tube against the results card?
Obviously light will make it look lighter and I could get a varied result.
Anyone have any suggestions to get ph between 8.1-8.3 without having to add buffers etc. I really don't like putting anything in my tank unless I reaaaally need to (emergency etc). My fish caught ich a while back and all I did was hypo-salinity (lost 2 out of the six) and unfortunately they were riddled but I think the less chemicals, the less stress, slow changes between temp and salinity levels (drastic, quick changes will obviously stress them) and constant change of fatty foods when they're sick and hope for the best. Maybe I was lucky with ich years ago, but I would still go for that option first.
Any feedback I would love x
