Neutralizing dish soap accident
My friend Mike believes he has accidentally introduced some dish soap into
his tank. His pH skyrocketed to above 8.0 right after a water change,
making him think that someone may have used one of his fish-only water
bucket for household cleaning. The fish are all still alive - so it's not a
complete disaster - but they are displaying unhappy behavior. He's using pH
balancer to try to get back to 7.0...but it keeps testing alkaline. Any
advice out there?
Another big water change? Just get the pH down using chemicals for now and
let the tank stabilize? Dismantle the whole thing???
