Default Re: PH in water?????

The water has to have a ph value!....7.0 is neutral and could be referred to as a 0 or zero value, which means that there are no chemicals present that cause acid or alkaline readings.

Hi Dan that is what i thought, there had too be a ph reading, but from what I got from what he told me they said there was no ph at all... I just wanted to find out for sure befor I talked to the father-in-law again... So it just means that he did not cycle his tank long enough befor he added the fish... I guess I didn't say that it was a new set up....thanks Rob
