Having a Hard Time with Water Chemistry
I did a watertest and my ph was over 8.4. I purchased a ph adjuster and added that in. I wait a night and this morning the water has a whitish color to it and there's a huge oil slick over the surface, except where the water is moving around the pump. I tested the water and it's still around 8.4. The ph adjuster bottle says that if I have a high alkalinity, this might buffer the ph change. What should I do now? Change all the water out? This is really frustrating.
