That would raise pH. I agree on not using liquid additives to lower it.

I'm hoping maybe it's just a temporary thing. Hidden dead fish decaying?

For now I'm going to make it a habit of pre-mixing my PWC water and using buffer salts. Over the period of a few weeks (5 gallons a week) I hope this will adjust pH and not stress my fish out.

Just like my SW tanks I'm learning not to use straight tap water for FW tanks either.

On a side note, here's some shameless self promotion.

I made a blog as a journal for my tank. I prefer it to a thread here so comments don't clog up the system.
