What should the pH level be in a betta fish tank? - Quora
White dolomite chippings are usually sold in local fish stores for use in marine or saltwater tanks to stabilize pH and alkalinity.
Well, not quite. This is maybe the most important thing to learn about how pH numbers work. For each number, you go down on the scale, the acidity increases by 10 times. And it keeps multiplying up… so if you take an alkali loving fish from his pH8.0 tank and put him in a Discus tank with a pH of 6.0 you will be increasing the acidity by 100 times. Not good.

Hi there, what's the best way to raise pH in a fish tank
How to test the pH level in your fish tank
The pH of tap water—the one we most often use to fill our tank—is not always the best choice for the diverse needs of the fish we keep in our aquarium.Peat moss can act as a natural water filter and help lower the tank pH. Similar to driftwood, peat moss can also color the water, so it is recommended to leave it for a few days in a bucket of water. It is very important to use untreated peat bought from pet stores, as peat found at gardening stores may contain chemicals dangerous for fish or .Be very careful when changing the tank filter. Newly developed bacteria and substances in the filter can also effect the pH and make fish feel uncomfortable.I don't advocate you not to change your pH deliberately, but I would advocate you not to make alterations in pH in a panic. If you are so particular in bringing down pH you can rely on peat-filtration or a piece of driftwood. Instead of spending on RO or other resins, you can spend that money on a bigger tank. Try to keep your pH fairly stable. If you are so concerned about your fish's health, consider regular water changes. Don't panic and get into a mess as fishes face more nightmares and harsh conditions in the wild than in home aquaria. I would also advocate against using a pH lowering chemical until you know its ingredients and its working, and NEVER TEND TO INCREASE OR LOWER YOUR pH RAPIDLY.
