Wink Very low pH

The pH of my tank is 6.2, is this considered very low? I have FLORABASE as substrate and have CO2 injection at 1 bubble every 3 seconds. What caused the very low pH? Is this good for the plants and fish? What do I add to make it higher? What is the ideal pH?

Hi eddtango

Donít worry about it. The 6.2 pH is about ideal. You may need to check your KH so you can calculate the CO2 concentration.
