Landens aqua soil and ph
This is regarding a caridina shrimp tank thatís been prepping the last 45 days or so. I use RO water remineralized with:
Mgso4 : 10ppm
Nitrates sit at about 5ppm. Moderately planted.
PH 5.2-5.3 (freshly calibrated ph pen)
Any thoughts why the ph is so low? I was expecting more around the lines of 6.5. Should I add in some carbonates to get maybe a 1kh?
The crystals going in are raised in about 6.4ph from SoShrimp. The Gourami in the tank now seems to be loving life. Im curious for some thoughts because I know most reminerlizers are just mgso4, caso4, k2so4 so I donít get why my ph is so low.
