    Question PH For Comet Gold Fish


    0 Not allowed!
    I have a 125 Gal pond that I use in a Aquaponics System with about 15 gold fish in it as the source of nutrients for the veggies in my grow beds. The grow bed will act as a biological filter taking the nutrient from the pond water pumped through them, don't have the plants in yet but I have a bio filter in the pond. I have had the system running a couple of weeks now and did a water check the other day and my PH was in the high range (7.8 part /million). I have read that a PH of 7.4 is optimal . So my question is this: Is my PH to high , and if so what should I be doing about it? I want to use safe methods in the system because I want to be able to eat the veggies without unwanted chemicals in them.
    Any and all help and advice welcome.

    Thanks

    I find nothing wrong with your pH. Especially for goldfish who are often kept in cement ponds and manage to survive many conditions.

    Thanks , I had just about decided that also . They really seem to be doing well and have grown in size , feel that is a good indicator.

    Thanks again
