Need to raise the ph in my malawi tank and have read that baking soda will work . Does anyone have any experience in using this and how effective it is and also how safe it is , I dnt want to harm my fish to save a few quid .
Yes it works OK. People don't normally use it for planted tanks because of the sodium content. Potassium bicarbonate (KHCO3) or potassium carbonate (K2CO3) <"are the more usual ones">.Need to raise the ph in my malawi tank and have read that baking soda will work
I agree with the others I'd be absolutely amazed if that was the pH after the water had sat for a while. You should be able to get hardness values for your tap water from your water company.My tap water comes out at 6.5 which is good for plants if I'm correct ?
