    Check out one of our members wilds. I love his tank and the simplicity of how a tank can be with wilds.

    Wilds are awesome but there are some fantastic color strains available. I like red blue combinations and some of the red yellow combinations.

    Just be careful about whether your buying hormoned fish or not. If the fish is young the color will not last and it may damage breeding capability.

    Unusually I have nothing more to add...

    I just put some driftwood and fake plants into the tank and ph has gone down really low.It reads as 6 which is as low as my testing kit can read.Does this mean that I have to take the driftwood out ?

    thanks for any response

    Driftwood moves the pH very, very little ......if at all. I crammed 5 big pieces of driftwood in my 55 gallon and it never moved the pH. You should take a reading of your pH right from the tap to find out if this is something in the tank moving those numbers down or if it's your water.

    You need to be careful with pH if it goes below 6 and I'm not too sure if even 6 wouldn't be a problem. You can not grow bacteria in pH that low and that's also referred to a "tank crashing" when you suddenly have an uncycled tank due to pH crashing like that.

    Before getting any discus, I would get this current problem resolved and find out what is bringing your pH down like that. If pH needs to be increased some, you can do that with a few coral shells rather than chemicals.
