Hello Fishy Lovers, So, Blub is in his new 55 gallon, it having fully cycled fishlessly. All water parameters were holding steady, with nice flourishing anacharis plants. Suddenly this morning, Blub was flashing around a bit, and when I did the API pH test, the water tested greenish at about 6.5! Wow! I'm in NYC and water's usually alkaline. I had to go to rehearsal righ then and there, so I couldn't put a pH up in the water until after i got home from work....so I bought AFI pH up and said a prayer. Came home about 5 hours later, ready to put in the pH Up i bought and took the AFI pH test again---but now it's BLUE back to where it always tests, about 7.6 !!! ALL BY ITSELF! I mean, I've never heard of such a change. Nothing was added to or taken away from the aquarium. I'm glad it's back in the blue....but isn't that change itself what stresses out fishy?
