What's your pH? If it is 7.8 or higher youre fine. People tend to freak out at 7.8-8.0. Do your fish look bad?

Very high ( greater than 9.5) or very low (less than 4.5) pH values are unsuitable for most aquatic organisms. Young fish and immature stages of aquatic insects are extremely sensitive to pH levels below 5 and may die at these low pH values. High pH levels (9-14) can harm fish by denaturing cellular membranes.
