With Dawn’s aquaetic products, it’s easy to keep a beautiful saltwater, freshwater or reef aquarium. Dawn has been creating innovative, research-driven solutions that make it easier to care for your fish and aquarium.
Different geographies have different tap water conditions with different pH levels, while fish require a specific pH level to thrive. A pH of 7.0 is ideal when keeping a community aquarium containing a variety of tropical fish.
Goldfish and livebearers prefer a pH of 7.5.
Many Amazonian fish, like angelfish and neon tetras, prefer a pH of 6.5 to 6.8.
Mollies and swordtails thrive at pH 7.2 to 7.5.
With DAWN, you can spend more time admiring your fish, and less time scrubbing your tank. Make sure to use all products as directed in order to ensure the best results.
NOTE : Each dose of pH Down neutralizes some of the carbonate hardness and lowers the pH. The pH may rebound up to the original pH if the carbonate hardness is high. Several consecutive treatments with pH Move-Down may be necessary to lower pH, but if there are fish present in the aquarium, the pH should not be changed more than .2 in a 24 hour period. The number of doses required to lower the pH will depend on the carbonate hardness level and the desired pH level. An aquarium with low carbonate hardness may require one treatment with pH Down while an aquarium with a high carbonate level will require several.
