Hi guys what can I add to my tank to bring up my ph its at 7.3 ?
Whats your salinity, alkalinity, calcium & magnesium?
A ph that low sounds like one of 2 things.
A faulty test kit or super low alkalinity. Even my tap water has a higher ph than that bud!
If you want to keep any corals happy/alive, you will seriously need to correct that asap!
Other factors that can contribute to a low ph is very little ventilation in the room where the tank is situated (high carbondioxide levels) but most likely it will be a low alkalinity level...
Wel this tap water was tested it is very very low we are looking into ways to make the tap water higher. This is my fathers tank which PH is so low. Will get those readings tomorrow . My nano tanks ph is fine and al the rest aswel . My fathers tank is a fish only tank no corals ect.
Ok, then just get his alk above 7dkh & it should rise & stabilize by itself.
Also, what lighting does he have?
39w 10000k sunlight x2
39w actinic x2
dont know what salinity is.
ph now 7.9
Get that salinaty tested.....
