Re: Apistogramma iniridae

Your tap water is good for normal keeping, you don't need to do 
anything more unless you're looking to breed them. I have only 
had A. iniridae once and they required a pH lower than 5 for 
successful breeding. I had soft water from the tap (<2 dGH) 
so I just filtered the water over peat to get the desired pH. 
Your water should be soft enough so that you don't need RO or 
deionized water.
