Oh, well okay then, I won't worry about it too much! I've just never had water that came out with such a high pH, so I guess it's just something different for me. The neons don't seem to mind it at...

Thanks Sharko! It's still got a long way to go but it's getting there.

pH - 8.2
Ammonia - 0-0.25 ppm
Nitrite - 0 ppm
Nitrate - 0 ppm

It's still early enough in the tank's life that I am willing to break it down and switch substrate. I have the Activ-Flora substrate in there now but I suppose I could switch it out for the finer...
