More Information as Requested
Ok, I do have rocks in my tank... 3 mid-sized ones. They are striped, don't know the name. There is no coral in my tank. Almost immediately my fish started acting oddly once i removed the airstone, so I put it back in within 2 hours. The general hardness of my water is fairly high from what i remember in my past tests... considered "hard water".
I don't top of my water... it may of been like 2 weeks since my last 5 gallon water change / of 29 gallons. I use Flora-Complete mixed with standard gravel as a substrate, if i recall correctly. I dont have any excess of algae, more brown dry scum spots on glass... not growths.
I changed out 10 gallons my aquariums water sunday in hopes to lower it a little bit.
I really just want to know how i can bring it down to around a 7 or 7.5, just for my plants sake. Also, I currently just use Excel and Flourish liquids... dwarf hairgrass is a little haggard, and these are all i've used for probably 2 months. Which supplements should I add in additional and specific product names and where i can get them?
