Ph Adjuster

Im thinking of adjusting my ph with a Adjuster product. Its PH Adjuster Down found in most shops. Will this effect my plants? Im going to be adjusting slowly obviously to avoid the stress of change on the fish and plants but will using a product hurt my plants????

Its at about 7.8 right now... I have read that plants absorb nutrients best when they are in the appropriate environment. PH is part of that mix.

Why do you want to adjust your pH?

Fish or plants do not need that stuff regardless of what some guy at
a fish store may tell you, save your money.

What's your pH now? Unless it's really alkaline and you're keeping Neons or Discus or something, I wouldn't worry about it.

Plus, 99% if the liquid pH buffers out there don't work anyway...

Got Plants?-6 CO2 + 12 H2O → C6H12O6 + 6 O2 + 6 H2O

Always interested in trades for aroids, carnivores, orchids, ferns, or whatever else you think I might like to try
