Just to clarify... I assume you were fishless cycling by adding ammonia or something for the 2 weeks prior to adding the little Angels?

What is your ammonia/nitrite levels at right now?

Got some questions for you.

1 - How many watts of light are you using for the tank?
2 - You said you have no fish in the tank. Are you manually dumping ammonia in the tank (fishless cycle)?

Agreed

Stop trying to change your PH. A stable PH is MUCH more important than the actualy number. Products like PH Down should be banned in my humble opinion. Many a fish have they killed. :(

Stop using Seachem neutral. A fluctuating PH is very dangerous so the fact that you are seeing the PH "changing around a lot" is a HUGE problem. Throw it away!
