Help me decipher my water test


Recommended Posts

Started cycling 4 days ago. Current readings are:


pH: 7.6

Ammonia: 0.25

Nitrite: 0

Nitrate: 0

Water Temp: 76.3


Are my numbers okay so far? What do I need to do to get my pH down? BTW, this is a FW tank and not a SW. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Looks about right, I would raise the temp to 78. Dont worry about pH right now. You could open a window and the pH would probably decrease some :) after your cycle, you could buffer it with peat but it will probably straighten out. Now, you could have a lot me fun and get more responses if you would leave the dark side and start reefing :)

Depends on what freshwater fish if you want say a more acidic water you would need to lower that p but evey thing looks on track for a normal cycle. Also this is probabley not the best forum for all your questions. i would suggest finding a different forum or hey no one will kick you out if you stay here no worries
