Low Low Ph!


Recommended Posts

So my baby pearl scale got nitrite burns to his fins about a week ago, so I did about .1% salt for a week, didn't see any changes and decided to put the little guy intothe big tank as it is more stable, and proper filtration. When I was testing the pearlsclaes ph before adding the little guy I noticed it was at 6!!

No wonder he wasn't getting any better!

Does salt do this?

Or have I been using the wrong salt?

Since he's in the main tank with excellent water and filtration, should his fins heal eventually now?

Well if the water you use doesnt have a high KH in the 130ppm mark it can lower the ph over time, you might have something in the main tank that keeps it there but yeah a ph of 6 with nitrites can burn them :(
