Simply put- You bet.  Every time.  Every species... Well, every Apisto at 
least.  I have found that angels will spawn over a wide range of pH and 
hardness, but will only tend their fry at pH levels in the 6.0 to 6.5 range 
and hardness around 3 degrees GH and KH.  Tetras, rasboras and lots of cats 
are also pH and hardness sensitive.  As long as you've been on this list, I'm 
surprised this is news to you.
