- Aquamedic PH down powder.
- ADA Aqua soil (Amazonia)
- Volcanic Rocks.
Maybe I should get some volcanic rocks.

Usually the pH becomes lower over time. Depending on the GH and KH, I add Ca2CO3 or NaHCO3 to increase the pH.

Injecting CO2 with aquatic plants, PH will be lower as well. This is where you need to up the PH with monitoring.

So it all depends on how each tank is being set up. There is no one size fits all thingy. You just have to learn each method via each setup. Hence, it is encouraged to try different things with each tank. That is how you gain experience. At one point, I manage 3 tanks with 3 different characteristics.

pple use basin but koi itself gets very large as time progresses. You look at the video, HDB just dun have the space for it to move around. So koi is not suitable for HDB.

ok, rear water method, there are a lot of ways doing this. Mine differs with most pple, because I adjust TDS using distill water. RO water can be used it pretty much works the same. But my main source comes from the tap.

Eg. taiwan water which comes from RO technology, you worry more about salt content. Again, rear water varies not from country but water source.

Actually for alot of the guys here, due to lack of either resource, space or time, rearing gallons of water or running di water then boosting the tds up simply isn't very Feasible. Many of us probably just have a small Space at home to enjoy this hobby. Perhaps the experts here can share some of their knowledge on some basic tricks that wouldn't take took much of time at time

Actually Hor for changing water I want ask also

Right now I got a pipe to suck out water to drain , this part ok.
But the other part I headache. My pipe also can connect to tap and straight to tank.

So when I put water in tank, how ah? It would be be straight tap water to tank, I scared the chlorine will kill my bb? Then how ah?

I was thinking I dose antichlorine into tank then I introduce tap water . But I gotta introduce the tap water slowly then would the antichlorine still be effective ?

Boil water, cool it, bottle it up.

Tis the most simple way. PH use PH down powder to control.

Dechlorination is done outside main tank. So if you can relocate the tap water to go to a storage, put a small aquarium pump to pump into the main tank, I dun see a problem. Simple tubing, storage plus a pump.
