so i notice that some of my fish are diving down and like scraping their sides on the sand at the bottom of the tank.. is this normal? levels are all good
No need to have 24 gal. of water sitting around for 24 hours. -Just fill a gallon bucket (or whatever you use for water chages) and let it sit for 24 hours, then check the pH.m1ke715m said:yea but id still have to add the water to the tank first i dont have enough holding space to have 24 gallons of water sitting out for 24 hours.. er actually thatd only be for one tank so itd be ALOT of water id have to leave out which i jus wouldnt be able to do.. would it be wise to put the buffer in like i do.. then in 24 hours test again and re-treat accordingly? also how much malawi and tang buffer would you recommend to adjust the ph up how much.. like if i put in buffer and then in 24 hours my ph in my malawi tank is 7.4 jus for example how much more would i want to add? my tang tank looks like its at 8.4 right now after i put 1.5tsp/10g of seachem tang buffer
If he uses a buffer, it shouldn't matter.DJRansome said:I think his question is, OK what if his water DOES change pH after sitting 24 hours? How do you treat with 2 different pH's to consider. I don't know the answer.
