You need to adjust the pH to suit the fish that you catch directly from the wild or adjust the pH to domesticated the water gradually to the pH of the water where you want to feed them. Of course, the pH of the cultured water needs to be stable and the clean water environment will ensure the health of the pet fish.
HOW TO ADJUST THE AQUARIUM PH:
What to do if your standing water is abnormally high or low?What to do if the running water pH is still in a stable range, but you want to feed the natural fishing fish that come from harsh habitats?
Aquarium stores sell pH-changing products, but these products need to be used with extreme care by experienced aquarium players to avoid sudden pH changes. Some products, especially liquid pH regulators, usually have only a temporary effect and the pH soon shifts back to its original value, making it necessary to continue adding more.This causes continuous pH variations that can cause your fish to suffer from long-term stress resulting in fins, loss of color and the appearance of certain types of diseases that can cause death.
If you decide to adjust the pH in your aquarium, it is recommended to do before stocking the fish, or adjust the pH in the storage tank before entering the tank and check the pH regularly to ensure it remains stable. If you adjust the pH right in the tank, you must adjust little by little, it is best to 0.5 units for each adjustment of each 2-4 hours depending on the fish, to avoid the phenomenon of fish shock due to sudden pH changes.
Here are some natural methods to adjust pH more long-term and more stable over time.
HOW TO REDUCE THE PH IN THE AQUARIUM:
• Use reverse osmosis (RO) or deionized water (DI) to create the desired pH and provide a buffer system for stable pH. Always prepare water and check the pH before adding to your aquarium.However, RO and DI water has a pH of 5.0 – 7.0 so can only be adjusted to a very small extent for the pH of the water in use. Therefore, the effectiveness in this way is not high.
• Decorate your aquarium with natural hordies. Tannins released by the flood can help reduce pH, but keep in mind that a moderate amount of ramp is needed to have the desired effect. One or two small pieces will not do much, especially in a large aquarium. However, the amount of tannins released depends greatly on environmental factors and the flood itself, moreover, the amount of tannins is limited, so pH in the environment may remain variable and unsustainable over time.
• Peat Moss: Moss can secrete Tannins that can reduce pH. Use mesh bags to hold it and use only Moss Items products designed for aquariums. Supplement as needed to maintain the desired pH.This way the reduced pH may not be as much as the fish player wishes and the microorganisms in the filtration system will probably transform this Tannin very quickly causing ineffectiveness of Moss Item.
• You can use KOIKA PH- to reduce pH sustainably without harming the fish. It is possible to adjust the pH as desired without losing too much time as the above ways. After 2 beats used 10 hours apart, you will get the desired sustainable pH right with the tank with fish.
HOW TO INCREASE PH IN THE AQUARIUM:
• RO and DI water can be used as a way to lower the pH above. But of course, the effect is also very limited and quite expensive.
• Use crushed corals or dolomite stones for substrates or as a substrate substrate. These calci carbonate substrate stones will gradually dissolve over time, gradually losing effectiveness.
• Decorate your aquarium with limestone or coral reef.With these rocks will help your aquarium pH be increased.
• You can use KOIKA PH+ to increase your pH sustainably without harming the fish. It is possible to adjust the pH as desired without losing too much time as the above ways. After 2 beats used 10 hours apart, you will get the desired sustainable pH right with the tank with fish.
ADAPTED NEW FISH:
When buying new fish at the store or at the fish farm, or measure the water pH where you buy, then adjust the pH of your farmed water accordingly before stocking the fish.This adjustment is very simple if you use koika pH reduction product, which is both safe and effective. Then you adjust yourself slowly to the desired stable pH so that the fish gradually adapts.
Changing water periodically and maintaining the pH properly will keep the fish healthy.
