|Another confused person here|
Here are the stats for my 60g tank which currently contains:
3 clown loaches
One gold gourami
5 black widow tetras
12 rummy nose tetras
All values are in mg/L
GH - 120
KH - 0
pH - 6.3
Nitrites - 0
Nitrates - 40
I thought that if GH was high, that pH was usually more alkaline? I am trying to raise my pH as I constantly battle an acidic pH and want to do what I can to keep it more neutral. Or at least between 6.5-7.
Help? All this chemistry stuff freaks me out.

Ok just doing some reading and it seems that low KH would be why my pH is so low.

Yes, that would be the reason. You can raise the KH of the tank by adding some baking soda to the tank. It will affect only the KH.
