planted tank (14 different plants)
1M, 2f guppies
1m black molly
5 cherry barbs
20g running since Xmas.
pH before diy co2
was 7. I setup up (2) 2L co2
generators (sugar&yeast) and bubble counter diffused into hob
intake on Thursday. Friday I checked the pH again and it was down from 7 to between 6 and 6.2 hard to tell. So I took off a 2L bottle and had 1 run from last night. I just checked and pH is 6.6
Reason I'm looking for help is 1 of my guppies aborted (not sure when she is/was due) and I'm chalking it up to the pH swing. Would you agree?
Also, is there anyway to control pH without a drop checker which I don't have or a controller? Should I disconnect the co2
setup at night and let it bleed off into the atmosphere? then hook 1 bottle up for daytime?
And will the pH rise back to normal without doing wc
If anymore info is needed please ask.
