6 years back I got rid of my 30 and 45 gal
tanks. Just got a new 37 gal
and will be ready to add fish in a few days. Glad to find a forum I can turn to in case of trouble.
Eclipse deluxe combo on my old 45 gal
natural gravel with some larger black rocks added.
A U shaped chunk of lava rock with a place for fish to hide.
7 plastic plants.
My city, Moore Oklahoma uses well water. It is very hard (GH
around 200 and KH
about 300 ppm
) with a high PH
that is very hard to bring down. PH
is off the scale with the jungle test strip from the tap. Years ago with another test kit it was 9.2. I could get it to about 8.0 with some effort back then.
I was still able to keep Neons, black skirted, head&tail light, tiger barbs, angels and others alive for several years with this water.
Is it worth the effort to bring down the PH
or should I just let the fish get used to the high PH
