What do you find hardest to maintain with your aquarium?
pH for sure I don't know why. Never can hold that sweet spot so to speak.
Well...pH would be tough...but knowinf buffers is good. I am making my own (NOT FOR THE TANK) It is actually very interesting how they work. I think I am going to have to go with temperature...my heater just hates me hah.
I went with the temperature
Well if P.H is the problem just get some boraxo laundry booster aka Borate to hold it steady once you get the P.H where you want it .. But use some Arm & Hammer washing soda aka Carbonate soda not not the Bicarbonate soda as that tends to lower P.H once the carbonates are exhausted ..
I picked temp by default. Never a problem with others.
Temperature is the only thing I have an issue with particularly on hot days. (which we don't have often here in PNW)
tempreture ,just trying to find a chiller that wont cost an "arm and a leg".
Just get a room AC. I was down at Home Depot last night and saw they had many inexpensive ones...I mean really inexpensive!
You might as well enjoy the "cool" also.
