Can media from another tank effect pH on a new tank?
If I took bio max, rings whatever for say my African tank and seeded the new Fluval C4 with those rings and everything remained the same. Could those media rings effect pH?
I ask because a PetSmart employee said to me that yes, it will cause my pH to rise to 8.0-8.2 or whatever pH my African cichlid is at there for not a good idea to seed my filter with anything from my cichlid tank.
I learned my lesson before so I just said thank you for the info and walked out of the store baffled. Could he be right? I never thought of it...
