Herefishie Posted March 11 Share Posted March 11 I purchased a Fluval SPEC 2.6 gallon with the intention of housing shrimp only. I have two other tanks. I use tapwater and all the parameters are fine in those tanks. I set this shrimp tank up 3 days ago. It has gravel substrate and a few plants in it. I tossed in a sponge pre-filter from one of my other tanks to help seed it. The pH is high! It keeps reading 8.4. I can't understand why considering I'm using the same water. I replaced half of the water this morning with RO water but it hasn't changed. I'm pretty new to the hobby and sure would appreciate some advice.
