pH test kit outdated?
I set up a new tank https://www.plantedtank.net/forums/22...qua-11-4g.html
and I'm attempting to dial it in.
-Mr. Aqua 11.4g
-Aquatek Mini Paintball Co2 set-up; diffused w/ an Elite Mini filter
-2 Satellite Planted LED +'s
Currently battling BGA. I've got the Co2 cranked up fairly high. I can't give an accurate BPS, but it's a steady stream. I attempted to get a reading of Co2 last nite by measuring pH & KH values. My ph reading is 6.0 & KH is 5. (kits are 5+ y.o.)
According to the attached chart, I don't have enough Co2. I honestly can't imagine getting anymore in the tank:-) I also added a drop-checker & it was bright yellow and stayed that color even after 8 hours of no Co2. I'm assuming that it's junk too?
Will be getting new test kits today, but i guess my question is could pH be so low w/ Co2 cranking out @ a high-rate?
cheers PT gang!
