Can you add vinegar to water to lower the PH before adding it to your aqaurium? Is it safe? I understand its not good to lower the ph to much in a short time but is vinegar safe for aquarium plants and fish?

I agree, it's really a PITA to try to keep a stable pH when you start trying to change it.
What is it out of your tap? Most fish will easily adapt to a wide variety of pH's providing it's not bouncing around all the time.

If you really want to lower it, using something like peat is much better - or C02.
Whew Simpte... :shock:

Ever consider African Cichlids?? :wink:
