Can someone tell me how Ammonia, Nitrite and Nitrate affect pH in a freshwater aquarium (if at all)? Iím assuming that Ammonia NH3 would raise the pH since it is a base. But water that hasnít been changed in a long time seems to exhibit high ammonia levels and LOW ph! So Iím confused (as usual) and what about the others? I have many boring reasons for wanting to know this which I wonít bother all of you with, lol! Thanks in advance for straightening me out!
