pH too High

Causes

Excessivly high pH, which may be accompanied by very high Hardness values. Test water with pH and GH & KH test kits to verify condition.

Prognosis

In tanks partial water changes can improve conditions dramatically. In ponds and enclosed bodies of water, liming can be used to lower pH and increase buffer capacity.
