pH is the measure of acidic or alkaline conditions of water.
A value of 7.0 corresponds to a neutral pH. pH values above 7.0 are considered alkaline, and pH values below 7.0 are considered acidic. Different fish need different pH levels to be healthy.

Check the pH level using a pH Test Kit. If the pH is not at the desired level, use PROPER pH to adjust and hold the level.
