Everytime i do a water change i add this product Nutrafin , PH Stabilizer . Is this a good additive??? My ph is usally 6.6 - 7.0 usualy 7.0 , but i forgot to add last change , and now its 6.6 , is this a coincidence?? or does it work?

I doubt you need a ph stablizer. Check your KH. This is what will tell you if you have a stable ph or not. If the KH is ok then you shouldnt need to mess with the PH. If your KH is low then you will need to buffer the PH but I would check your KH before adding anything to your tank.

you can either get a kh test kit or take some water to the lfs to get it tested.
And yes, a ph stabilizer would be a kh booster....but does your kh need to be boosted, thats what you need to find out.

One example is Sodium Bicarbonate.....aka Arm & Hammer baking soda.
