Shadow Posted February 19 Share Posted February 19 (edited) Hey, So this is my first planted tank. I have several plants in there, along with dragon stone, sand and Fluval plant substrate in small media bags under the sand. As its a new tank, I am attempting to use the magic water known as AP Quick Start but also have stocked the tank, a 10 gallon rimless, with just 3 guppies and a few shrimp/snails to start. The guppies seemed fine but have now huddled in one corner of the tank nearest the filter. I am running both a Fluval 20 AccuClear along with a sponge filter to keep the tank clean in the weeks it will take to properly cycle. Tank looks clear but my pH is incredibly low, 6.2-6.6. My water from faucet is 7.4, so if I am doing a 20% water change it should raise it some and it never does. I am waiting for some crushed coral from Co-Op's site as none of my local pet stores have any. Is there any way besides API's pH Up that works? The API products for the most part seem ok, but not the best. Any help would be appreciated...thanks!
