Grammaknits02 Posted December 9, 2014 Report Share Posted December 9, 2014 HI-- I have a 6.5 gallon tank with Blue Velvet shrimp. I had decided that to ensure my water parameters are stable all the time, I wanted to switch from tap water to RO. I got some salty shrimp gH+ to remineralize with. My problem is that all of the RO water in my area has a pH of 6, which is a little lower than I am comfortable with. I would much rather keep the pH 6.8 to 7. For substrate I am just using black aquarium sand. For now I am mixing half tap and half RO which gives me a gH of 6, kH 1-2 and TDS of 175, and pH of 6.8. I really was wanting to get away from tap water all together though. I would rather know what I am putting in my tank all the time, and not have to worry about the possibility of the city changing things in the water. Any ideas for how I could safely get my pH up to stay at a steady level? Thanks in advance for your advice!! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
