I ended up putting the whole bottle into a 36 gallon tank. It brought the PH down a little but it would rebound right back up within a few hours. 2 days after adding the bottle the ph was the same as the tap water that I started with 8. The folks at petsmart said not to add any more, the best way would be to add spring water to my tank.

Didn't work =(

This was one of the first products that I tried when trying to get my pH down in my tank (2.5 gallons). I tried, day after day, to see some sort of change in the pH, but no luck. My area of living has very hard water, so it's always difficult for me to get the pH down.
This one didn't work, even after I used twice the recommended dose for almost 3 days. I gave up after that, worrying that it might harm my Bettas more than help them.
Wanna get the right pH? Use API's Proper pH. =)

I used ph down in my aquarium and in 5-10 mins my ph went from 8.2 to 7.0
the only problem is that it didnt come with something to measure the dosage
(by the way its actually 1ml for every 10 gals)
Pros: works great
