Hi everyone. I think this will be a helpful subject in everyway for aquarists. Can everyone tell me your tap water pH and your city location?

The Abbotsford water reports give three months of weekly pH readings in various parts of the city. There's quite a wide range in my area, but the average is roughly 6.8.
Ya it's weird how that works, i know some people on the other side of abbotsford are closer to 6.0

Which side is that, and are you sure it's city or well water? I get 6.6-6.8 from the tap in east Abbotsford but I've run tanks in west Abbotsford on well water more acidic than my own tap water.

Completely off topic, I've never owned a test kit (never had a problem) I do 30-50% water change daily, I did one this morning and it had no affect on the fish. Did a 50% after seeing this post, and now both my Wild angel pairs tube dropped and my unknown geos have theirs hanging too.

Edit: Forgot to mention I live 5 minutes away from Fishdragon (Eric) so his ph reading might correct.
