pH went higher, dust a problem ? Update
Never did find out if dust could raise pH but it isn't dust that is in my tank, the specks that look like dust are coming from my two bubble wands.
I have a dual outlet Azoo 6500 air pump that has low/high output. Use it on high and you get these specks all though the tank and on low they disappear. First I thought they were tiny air bubbles but they don't rise to the surface and the air pump has filters on it and they are clean.
Bubble wands are the plastic type, not stone, Can anybody clue me in to what the specks can be ?.
You're getting old when you get the same sensation from a rocking chair that you once got from a roller coaster.

Sounds like fine air bubbles at neutral buoyancy. Just a thought..happens to my 150g when I run air through the venturi on the powerhead. They're disappering on low due to absorption.150 gallon - red shoulder severum, gold severum, vampire pleco, gold nugget pleco, bush fish, clown loaches, botia loaches, mbuna cichlids, and a few others
