Re: Live Foods Digest V2 #216

Hello Charles,

Addition of sodium carbonate, Na2CO3, *not* bicarbonate NaHCO3, will
raise the pH that high and keep it there for a while. Eventually, CO2
from the air will convert the carbonate to bicarbonate and the pH will
drop slightly.

What fish do you keep that you need a pH of 9?
