is your pH easily changeable? of course. is it advisable? Probably not. a sudden pH fluctuation will kill your fish in a heartbeat. I didn't read that fact anywhere, I crashed the pH and killed an entire tank in under 10 minutes. If you are wanting to put your pH to a certain level and keep it there forever, aint gonna happen unless you maintain your tank properly to keep it there. the ro/di will give you the water with low pH, that's it. what happens after is up to you.

I'm not gonna get into all the science of the ro/di and everything it does, but all you are concerned about is it removes tds and lowers pH. Next time I get around to it I will actually test the water in my holding tank that comes directly from the ro/di unit to see what the pH is. typically it's around 6-ish. with all that is going on in my tanks it comes up to around 6.6. I have an angelfish tank. I have a discus tank. I have two saltwater tanks.

My name is Deb and I have MTS
