hey Dave,

whats your tap water pH? its about 7.4 in my area. honestly, i never test my kH etc, but i do test my pH once a week. my 20g tank with 130w pc 10hr/day, co2 with 2 bubbles/sec/24hr. pH is about 6.6~6.8.

my 5.5g tank is weird tho. 48w pc 9hr/day, co2 with 1 bubbles/sec/24hr. pH is 6.0 or even lower. my test kit only can test from 6.0 to 7.8 something like that, but im pretty sure kH is low. water is very soft. hehehe i judge kH by Tonina sp. :lol: it can survive and has new stems come out.

my 2.5g tank just set it up as my connection tank yesterday for short term. :wink: 26w pc 8hr/day(haven't turn on lights yet), co2 with 1 bubble/2sec. pH was as 5.5g around 6.0 or lower.

i think pH does matter with how well co2 dissolves in the water. :roll:
