Ph help

Recommended Posts

How can I raise ph. I have about 8 shrimp tanks of different sizes. Some are at 7.6 and some as low as 6.0. None of which is my doing. Only real difference between the tanks that 7.6 and 6.0 is the the 7.6 tanks have canister filter and the 6.0 has sponge filter.

Do you use anything else besides RO water for water changes? Your KH is very low, which reduces buffering capacity allowing large pH swings. Is there anything else in the tank that could be softening your water? Anything different in filtration media?
