Ancistrus ph

Could an ancistrus live in water ph8 and gh15 ? Or will it suffer in this way?

I have LF BN Plecos thriving in those conditions. I would say it depends on the species and whether or not they are tank raised or wild. Many fish will adapt. one key is CLEAN water

I have the same and she is growing and eating like a boss. She has grown roughly and inch in the last month. Like Tuna said plecs do fine in hard water. It's more important to have good clean water. The only time it really matters is if you are planning on breeding them. Most people call them bristlenose or bushy nose plecos rather than by their proper genus name which is ancistrus.
