Re: Acclimating to "normal" water conditions

Hi, Francine,

Here in Sao Paulo the tap water is medium hard and neutral (pH = 7.2 and
after a couple of days, ph = 7.0). The majority of the sellers don't mess
with the water, so when bying a fish I simply don't care for it. For my
breeding pairs I use rain water, after filtering it mechanically, by carbon
and peat; as the fry is growing I start to mix it with tap until, after a
month, I use only normal tap water (dechlorinated, of course).
