all right, I just tested again and the KH
never turned blue... I am using the liquid tests, and read the directions over again and again to make sure I wasnt doing something wrong. I'll test my tank again later tonight.
This tank has been set up for maybe a month??
I just tested my tap water and I got 7.2 PH
I know I have rams, they have the red eye with the black stripe ,
something I thought of just a sec ago was the expiration date. I have one on my master kit, but the KH
kit has none to be found. I found some numbers... but not sure if they are a date or not.
From the research that I found before I got my rams, in nature they are low ph
fish. although they will thrive in many ph
levels, so long as they are stable.
I have no home water filteration...
My Rams seem happy... They zip all over the tank, chase each other all over, play in the plants that seem to be taking over the tank, and eat like they have never been fed before... 8O
I just want them to have the pretty colors....
RIght now they are a tannish-greenish sort of... their stripes stand out very nicely, and the blue fleck on their sides just sparkles... They do get color on their bellies usealy during dinner, and their eyes are that red with the black. they have some red in their fins, but not much. Do you think I could have gotten a bad batch? Or maybe they arent big enough to color up?? Or maybe it is just my screwey water... Its kind of ironic, I was so worried about my water being too hard for these guys, and turns out it might be to soft... hmmmmmm
