Ph Dropped from 7.0 to 6.0?
Since adding my guppies this morning my Ph has dropped from 7.0 to 6.0?
Is that too low?
Is it normal because tank is cycling?
Do I need to do a water change? What %?

Usally your PH can change somewhat during your cycle, but you don't have any ammonia and/or nitrites yet.
Maybe the PH in your tap water is not stable ? You can test this to find out. Take a water sample from your tap and test the PH. Then let that same water sample sit for 24 hours then test it again. If the PH in your water supply is not stabel, you will get two very different resultsIf you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.
