Excellent question. I always think it's good to find out the motivation so that the advice can be thorough and keep the goals of the originator in mind.mithesaint said:What fish are you planning on keeping?
I prefer to buy fish locally, as they are usually already acclimated to local water parameters, and then you don't have to worry about keeping a specific pH. Consistency in pH is better than trying to hit exact natural parameters.
Keep talking. You're digging a hole next to the bridge you just burned.TheeMon said:why u gotta be like that? it would have taken 30seconds to type my answer, or if you didnt know just left it be. then after u gave me my answer you could have instructed me on the shrimp, i still am new to the shrimp game so i wouldnt mind the extra advice, but this is a fish forum that deals with water params alot, thats why i asked here. i have other forums for shrimp/invert help, but ill take good advice from anyone...
btw your no soup nazis
thank you, my point exactly, i need help with a general problem, why and how i use it isnt that important.kornphlake said:I'm with theemon, some people come off pretty high and mighty thinking they can solve any problem with their years of experiance by probing into the deepest depth of one's soul. Rather a particular species can be kept in different water parameters is pretty irrelevant, the question was how to lower pH, not what pH is appropriate. The OP has already done some research to determine the necessary pH, why do we feel the need to confound the answer with more questions. No bridges were burnt by theemon, but certain responses have been a little immature and to a point condescending.
