Shrimp tank pH issue.... help?
Hey guys! Some know that I am in the final stages of setting up a CRS tank. In fact, all I need is to figure out this pH thing and I'll be ready to add them!
My tank is fully cycled. It is a ten gallon with a 27w 6,500k desk lamp, a bunch of mosses, an Aqueon QuietFlow 10 filter, Top Fin 50w heater, and Eco-Complete as a substrate.
My pH is around 7.4-7.6. I use distilled water (Essentially RO water) treated with Prime and Bee Shrimp Mineral GH+. Straight out of the jug, the distilled water pH is 6.5. I've done several water changes, hasn't really done much. Should I keep doing water changes? Any ideas on the cause??
No matter how hard you try, you cannot escape this hobby. You have been warned.
