Hi everyone I am new to the forum. I have been lurking and learning for a while now and finally have a question.
I dry started a 75 gallon rimless tank about 6 weeks ago, with ADA Amazonia, and several different tissue cultured plants. I flooded it about a week ago, added c02, and started EI dosing. So far my parameters are Temp 78.5, ph 5.95, NH3 0.022 ppm, NH4 1,877.23 ppb, and O2 8.1 and the plants appear to be growing well. The c02 comes on 2 hours before the 6 hour light cycle, and shuts off when the lights go off. My ph drops into the low 5.1 range which to me, seams very low. I have been in the hobby for over 50 years and kept all kinds of fish, including discus at ph 6. I plan on adding the usual assortment of tetras and amanno shrimp but wondered if a ph of 5.1 was too low?
Sorry forgot to include Gh 4-5 and Kh 1
