Akadama, no thanks
I have had problems with my oldest Akadama tank with pH creeping up. I transferred the shrimp out of it 2 mmonths ago, but haven't broke down the tank yet because it was fullof nice moss .
Well last night I tested the pH, and this is without any additives or anything for the last 2 months.
It was 8.6
Well, sorry even my Amazonia tank from 3 years ago still has a ph of 6.8
I was just amazed how fast it went down hill with no changes in water or maintenance
