New tank set up last Sunday.
Added water, prime.
Next day added ammonia to around 5ppm (had only API ammonia test kit)
Today my master kit arrived so I tested ph, ammonia and for fun nitrite.
Ammonia still around 5, no nitrite.
Ph out of tap about 7.4. Tank ph between 8.4 and 8.8.
Why the jump in ph? Ammonia induced? Going to added seeded filter tomorrow or Friday from lfs
. Should ph concern me?
