pH and KH adjustment for freshwater aquarium

pH (potential hydrogen) is an indicator of acidity (if pH is below 7 ) or alkalinity (if pH is above 7 ). A pH of 7 is considered neutral .
Depending on where your fish come from , it is important to adjust the pH : for example, fish from South America or Southeast Asia need an acid pH, around 4.0 to 5.0 . In contrast, fish from African lakes require a basic pH , around 8.0 .
The KH (or complete alkalimetric title - TAC) represents the carbonate hardness of the water. It measures the levels of calcium and magnesium from the bicarbonates and carbonates present in the water.
The KH makes it possible to check the buffering capacity of water , or its ability to stabilize the pH : thus, the higher the KH, the more stable the pH .
It is therefore an important parameter to check , in particular through regular tests .
