    i agree gogi. if it's coming out that hard consistently that means you either

    A) have to purchase a water softener and install it yourself to hook into your water system. As i'm in a condo on a fixed budget that's not ideal.

    B) get one of those ph up or ph down items from API which is dicey to say the least and that's a gradual drop any way you slice it. Also not a good idea.

    C) get a peat insert but again you'd need to keep a close eye, and even if you get the ph where you want to and take it out when you do a WC you'll have to put it back in again...(also not a good idea)

    Neither of these above ideas to me because i think it'd be too much stress on any fish, no matter where you live.

    And anyhow my fish are all adjusted to it, why would I want to change it LOL.

    Still love that color on the Neon, too bad you won't be able to keep it yourself.

    Very pretty fish and as for the water, it is ideal since the fish considers it ideal with those colors showing like that! Really, except for breeding getting the 'correct' pH and/or hardness is worthless for tank breed fish. I too had two and they were fine with each other and all the other fish (had two angels with a lot of cover, wood and stones in a 75 gal it worked. Had issues with the substrate building up waste and killing off the plants and later, most of the fish - learned the hard way about stirring the substrate - sand has its really bad down side!)
    Knowledge is fun(damental)

    A 75 gal with eight Discus, fake plants, and a lot of wood also with sand substrate. Clean up crew is down to just two Sterba's Corys. Filters: continuous new water flow; canister w/UV, in-tank algae scrubber!! Finally, junked the nitrate removal unit from hell.
