Wow, I hate my city. help?
Hey guys, I'm beginning to cycle one of my breeding tanks for RCS. I know that they are very hardy as I have bred them before, but soon I will be breeding more difficult shrimp.
Anyways I went about testing the water and decided to test my high range pH.. You can see it in the picture.. What the heck! 8.8? I figured there must be a mistake, so I tested my tap water.. Also 8.8! How can that be? I don't knw how I will ever breed anything with a low pH!
Anything I can do? These are breeding tanks and will be basic, I really don't want to add driftwood to lower the pH, however I would like to get it down to a more neutral number like 7.4-7.9.. Any help?
