To reiterate, you don't really need to, your fish have most likely already adapted to a ph of 6. At my old residence my water was at least 6 and I had a wide variety of fish that thrived in it.
Wow. thanks so much that made me feel very comfortable! alright.. okay haha, ill sit on that, i feel comfortable on that.. i've been told that if the fish "Seem " okay than they most likely are.. but your reply made me feel even better. i think i still have to do a water change though i have prepared some water and i intend on doing some syphoning tomorrow.. so you think that 6.0 is fine? i only really have two gold fish adn two white.. um, i.. don't know what they are.. and a pleco and a louch..
