My father is wanting to set up a discus tank. His water is off the same well water system as mine so his pH is 8.2-8.4. Kh
is 179ppm. Gh
is 179ppm. I recently read an article of an aquarist who has been keeping....farm raised not wild caught.... discus for several years in a pH of 8.0 with 200 ppm Kh
and 161 ppm Gh
. My question is...in your opinions....would it be safe to keep farm raised discus in my father's tap water given the hardness and pH levels or will he have to worry about disease and death from it.
