Depending on the types of fish and plants that you keep in ponds or aquariums, certain environmental parameters can be very important to the animal or plant health. For example, the degree of salinity (salt content), water temperature, amount of light, and oxygen content are all important parameters. Another important parameter is pH, which is defined as follows:
The pond or aquarium water may be considered acidic, neutral, or basic. In general terms, acidic means that the pH is below 7.0, neutral means that the pH is close to 7.0, and basic means that the pH is greater than 7.0. The pH scale ranges from 1 (extremely acidic) to 14 (extremely basic). Most ponds or aquariums have desired pH between 6.0 to 8.5.
There are several factors that contribute to difficulties in controlling pH. When just starting a pond or tank, the source water (tap water or well water) may be at a pH that is significantly different than optimal. Also, most ponds and aquariums are closed systems. That means that what happens in the system stays within the system. And because of this, the pH may begin to drift away from healthy levels as time goes on.
Whether one is starting a new system or maintaining the pH in an existing system, the easiest, safest way to control pH is with 'pH Higher' or 'pH Lower' from Ultra Clear.
Note: Every pond or aquarium is unique with respect to the species of animals and plants that reside within. Please consult your aquatic specialist (store owner, veterinarian, etc) to determine the pH that is best for your system.
