Well I treated my tank for parasites thinking it was gill fluke to my dismay it was not. The water that I add in my tank has a ph of 7, however when I checked my ph it was 7.8-8. Did a water change check the ph it was 7. Now a couple of days later the ph is up to 7.2 my tank has been up and running for 5 months. I'm not to sure why the ph went up, I will do another water change to bring in down again anyone have any ideas.
Where I live the fish type I have are not readly avaiable.
