I know everybody suffers from PH problems at one time or another, mainly as tap water is never what you want it to be, but can I just go on record as saying NEVER use PROPER PH if you already have fish in your tank
Was in my lfs today chatting to some staff I'd got to know well when a lady came in and starting telling everyone how the local pet store had recommended she filled her tank which had a PH of 8.2 with PROPER PH 7.0, she apparently ended up with a VERY cloudy tank which freaked her out but was recommended to leave it be, but because of the extreme PH change that was happening, her fish were also stressing out and of 23 fish all but 2 died. she had the tank setup for 3 years woth no problems and the fish had become acustom to the levels
she went back to the store, just to be told she should of read the instruction alot better, but she had brought the instructions into the LFS and it didnt warn anywhere of the dangers of extreme PH change.So can I just recommend you don't use this prouct unless you are starting the tank from new and are prepared to always pay alot to use the product at every water change.
I have a product NOT to use
