    Starting a new setup for a pair of rams possibly wild type or electric blue.

    I will do a planted tank with wood and leaves to hopefully soften the water and bring the ph to around 6.5.

    Filtration will be a simple HOB aquaclear since I'll plant heavily.

    Other fish I will do a group of green neons as dither and just simply something else to look at in the tank.

    Going to use bright LED even though there will likely be a lot of tannins in this tank.

    Also a glass lid was considering hatchets because there so neat to watch.



    I get so excited about new builds haha

    Going to plant mainly dwarf sag around a center driftwood piece and probably simple floaters like red roots. Keep it kinda simple not to crowded with tall plants.

    It would be easier to pre-mix the tap water with reverse osmosis water to get the desired parameters, especially if the GH and KH are high. With a GH of 22 and KH of 8, I can only achieve your desired PH with 2 cups of peat and 24 cups of water. That's a lot of peat to be used with so little water.

    Haha Well good thing that's what I'm planning :P

    Peat wouldn't work likely and be to time consuming.

    I have RO water at work I can use for water changes what not.

    Whats a good mixing ratio? I know I'll need to test my tap water first but.

    I can probably fill a few buckets whenever I need to.

    Also thanks for the response

    I'm too poor to get RO water so I can't provide a ratio. You want KH to stay at least 4 degrees to avoid PH swings.

    I'll be getting the hook up on a established breeding pair of long fin wild types or EB's. Getting them from my buddy that I got the rainbows from. Na na na boo boo
