Re: Acclimating to "normal" water conditions



Francine,

I don't consider anything liquid with a pH 8.5 water; that's more like liquid
cement! If your water has an equally high carbonate hardness (alkalinity) then I
would definitely mix the tap water with softer water. Some apistos will handle
living in your tap water, but I doubt that blackwater species will.

BTW the elizabethae Išana male is now over 3" SL with lots of red on the body.
Let me know when you want him.
