Thinking about (planted tank) things
I was thinking about some things and maybe someone with some real brains can help.
I was told that nitrification takes a hit at low pH levels. (this is how this all started)
Nitrifying bacteria is what rids nitrates right?
So if I ran with a real low pH I would only have more nitrates right? Because of no nitrifying bacteria.
Ammonia is not toxic at these real low pH levels right?
So ridding the tank of nitrifying bacteria would be harmless with ammonia being less toxic? While keeping plants to gobble up the nitrate (or ammonia) the end result?
I am not really looking for an excuse not to change water add ferts or any other tank maintenance I am just looking to learn a few things.
