My final question (promise!) is should I choose fish that are suited to a PH of 8.2 or a PH of 6.7....or should I forget PH and choose fish based on the hardness (KH/GH) instead ?

Thanks

Paul

Hi Hoppy,

Thanks for your reply. So if I read you correctly, all of these PH/KH charts that relate to C02 levels are all false ? PH and KH values have nothing to do with C02 levels ?

I have 1x 58w T8 tube which equates to roughly 1.35WPG. If anything I think it might be because I don't have enough light.

I was just wondering the best way to keep the levels in check to avoid the diatoms blooming like this, I'm guessing RO would reduce the levels quite considerably ?
