Water PH levels

Fri May 29, 2020 4:47 am

Hi all.

My new seachem combo alert arrived today and the PH indicator is reading 7.5 which is lower than I thought it would be as I live in the UK hard water area. My liquid chemical test says it is 8. Firstly which test measure should I trust and secondly is a PH of either ok for my fish and if not how can I raise it? My substrate is crushed coral sand and the tank is full of rock.

Thanks in advance if any advice

Trust the liquid chemical test. Either is OK as long as it is stable. Test your tap water before and after leaving a cup of it standing on the counter for 24 hours.
