Determine The PH-value Using The Included Colour Chart.
The PH-value Is A Measure For The Acidity Of The Water. This Can Vary From 0 To 14, With 7 Being Neutral, Lower Being Acidic And Higher Being Basic.
The Most Important Thing About The PH Is That It Is Within The Tolerant Range Of The Fish That Are Kept, And That The PH Is Stable;
For This Stability The Carbonate Hardness (KH) Is Important, See KH For More Information.
Especially In Older Aquaria And Ponds The PH Has A Tendency To Decrease, Especially When There Are Little Or No Water Changes.
Hence, Test The PH Regularly And Refresh 10% Of The Water Weekly.
The Ideal PH For A Normal Fresh Water Aquarium Is Between 6.5 And 7.5.
When The PH Is Too High, You Can Lower It With Colombo PH-. When The
pH Is Too Low, You Can Raise It With Colombo KH+. In Specialised Aquaria
the PH Range Is Different E.g. Discus Fish (pH Between 6.0 And 7.0) Or
Tanganyika Cichlids (pH Between 8.0 And 9.0).
The Ideal PH Of A Pond Is Between 7.0 And 8.5. A Higher PH Is Rarely
encountered In Ponds; However Should This Be The Case, You Can Lower
the PH By Using Colombo PH-min. In Case Of A Low PH, Add Colombo
KH+ In Order To Increase It.
