Ok here goes. I have been reading alot of articals online about PH and water hardness. And I wanted to run this by you all to make sure it's right before I start messing with this.
First off I don't know what my GH
levels are yet, my API test kit doesn't include that, but I will be picking that up later on today. My PH is 7.6 and I want to rais it to ~ 8.0 it is my understanding that adjusting the GH
with something like Epsom salt will not rais the PH; that if you want to rais PH you have to rais KH
though the use of baking soda or other products like it made for aquarium use.
Is this even close to right or is there some part of the water chemisty bit that I have overlooked? Any feedback would be greatley appriciated by me and my fish.
