Added Aragonite sand to my filter to buffer extremely low pH...help

Recommended Posts

It sky rocketed, my fish dont seem stressed but my ph naturally out of tap is 6.0 (possibly lower) will this keep my ph stable or will it fluctuate? I hear Beneficial Bacteria dies at a very low pH so thats why I am trying to raise it (without chemicals).

Relax.  If your fish suffered stress, they'd let you know.  With luck you might get a stable pH of 7.4.

 

Your nitrifiers may die or at least stop oxidizing at a pH of 4.  

 

Why did you put the sand in the filter, rather than on the bottom of the tank?  That certainly sped up the pH rise.  :)
