Today, I had the sudden realization that my pH of 8.0+ might be the root to all of my planted aquarium woes ever since I started the hobby 3 years ago. D:

Bought Seachem Acid Buffer today, and planning to use half RO water for future water changes.
According to Seachem, this acid buffer isn't phosphate based. But it directly converts KH in the water into CO2, making it beneficial to plants. (Anyone have any idea how this is done?)

Is this really the truth? Can it be that I can finally not murder wisteria, java fern, moss, water sprite, and all the rest of the easy plants? D: Is it time to buy more variety of plants and try again? CAN IT BE THAT MY PLANTED AQUARIUM WOES ARE OVER?

Or am I fated to grow moss and java ferns forever? O_O
