  1. will a small amount of crushed coral in the filter helpo the goldie tank also. at least keep it stable. i dont wanna get into haveing to calculate additives every water change if i can avoid it
  2. my ciclids are breeding like crazy so they are healthy but the PH isnt normaly that low. its possible that something was in the city water 2 days ago when i did changes on both and since the goldies are in a tank 1/2 the size the fluxuation happend faster? who knows am doing a deep clean anyway just to be safe. its just sad cause we have had fishie and zelda for over 2 years since my son was 1 years old.
  3. im city water. close to a international airport ,highways, rivers. so run off is a huge issue. i dont know what has flux my PH i will take a sample from my cichlid tank to test KH and will probaly get crushed coral to stableize my PH.
  4. but what would couse the drop? could stress coat and other declorinaters lower the PH. both the goldfish tank and my trap are norm 7.2 to 7.6 . cichlids r 6.0 also ...
  5. any idea what is was. it was so sudden . do i just add the bleach to the water in the system and leave the fileers on. then do 100% water changes till bleach gone?
