    This was helpful to me. I am upgrading to a new tank 46 to 90 gallon with natural gravel now and would like to use coral/puka shell for my tank. I am worried about the ph change and I if Blood parrots will be ok with the coral substrate.Fantasia.jpgNew 90.jpgPinky.jpg

    I had been advised that coral substrate in an aquarium is a good buffer for keeping the pH close to 8. Beneficial bacteria in aquarium water function best during pH levels of 7.0 to 8.0. If you are able to use coral substrate and keep the pH levels as close to 7.0 then the fish would be fine. But I'm not sure how soft your water would have to be in the beginning. Crushed coral is often used in filters of fresh water to increase hardness and increase pH.
