View Full Version : Angels and Hard Water

I'm thinking about an all Angel tank. I'm currently doing a fishless cycle. The GH is 180 and KH is 240. Is this too high for Angelfish? If so, what are the optimal levels and what can I use to lower these levels? Thanks.

Angels are adaptable, but its unlikly they will successfully breed in water that hard. Driftwood and peat filtration will, in time, soften the tank water. A PUR water filter on your tap would also help.
Angels prefer water between pH 6.8 and 7.2, gH between 6 and 10 mg/l. They like temps 77 or 78 degrees.
