    Wink base pH for killies?

    hey guys, i recently added Neolamprologus multifasciatus (many-banded shell dweller) to my blue gularis tank (Fundulopanchax sjoestedti) and the shell dwellers are from Lake Tanganyika so i want an alkaline pH around 7.5 or higher. I've been looking for the pH of west Cameroon's lowlands on the coast and could not find anything. So would a 7.5 or higher be good for my killies? I'm also in the process of breeding them so i don't want to tamper too much with their water. Thanks!

    not sure, killie species tend to live in extreme environments but if they come from opposite ends of the extreme then they cant really be mixed. a nuetral 7.3-7.5 ph can work for the vast majority of fish. But i think lowland fish and especially fish near costal zones do well with higher ph water.
