My PH keeps dropping.. down to 7.9 in just two days, from 8.3..
I've already added 250grams of the Seachem PH 8.3 powder..
Is it bad to keep adding while I have the shrimp in there and waiting for a cycle?
The rock was crap.. the LFS
told me it's cured but it looks like it wasn't.
Until I added the shrimp it was just light greenish/white and it looks like no bacteria was present at all...
Now it's starting to come alive with bright green starting to appear.
I'm also getting foaming at the top a little, and the surface of the water looks like it has some kind of oil on it?.. it makes the rainbow color with light.. I'm also finally getting slimy deposits building up on the heater and the piping
So far so good, the PH keeps going down on me.. I have the CaribSea sand which is supposed to help, and caribsea rock, and Tufa rock all which are suppose to boost PH..
what could make the PH keep going down?
