tolstoy21 Posted October 5, 2020 Share Posted October 5, 2020 Is a ph of 7.4 for a neolamprologus multifasciatus tank bad? Nothing to worry about? I'm starting a shell tank and have a bunch of texts holey rock in it and some Carib Sea Florida Crushed Coral. The Ph has stabilized around 7.4. The tank is a 40 breeder with about 20 lbs of holey rock and inert sand. I have maybe a pound of the florida coral in a medium-sized box filter, bubbling water through that. I was hoping the Florida coral would buffer to around 8 since it has aragonite, but so far I'm sitting at 7.4. I was also under the assumption the the holey rock would have the same effect. My tap water is pretty acidic, has KH lower than 1, and stabilizes at around 6.6 - 6.8 if unbuffered. Any advice? Just roll with 7.4? Do the coral and rock take longer to buffer than I am anticipating? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
