High PH Community Tank
I have a nearly cycled tank that I'm hoping to stock fairly soon.
Throughout my cycle my pH has been fairly consistently testing at 8.4. I was planning on stocking with some Corys and Cherry Barbs, possibly a dwarf gourami, but from what I'm reading they all prefer a lower pH.
I've also heard that the actual pH level isn't as important as keeping it consistent. I'm worried if I try to lower it, I'll have some difficulty maintaining a lower pH after water changes and such.
