LTO Posted February 18, 2022 Share Posted February 18, 2022 20gal long planted, no co2, cycled ( more than 6m) i recently had to move my tank from one side of the house to the other, in doing so I replanted my plants and moved the substrate around. I noticed that when I test with the strips, I always have some pink in the nitrates, zero nitrite always. I’m trying to get my PH higher because it always seems to be below 6.4, so I added crush coral recently and the pH has been on the rise thankfully. my tank has driftwood and cholla wood, I’ve tried using wondershells but they only seem to bring the hardness up, never ph. Maybe I’m doing something wrong, any advice will be greatly appreciated. i have panda corys, and neon tetras, Amano shrimp and I had some cherry shrimp but they didn’t seem to survive the move. Also I’m sure the water parameters were not suitable. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
