I'm a bit confused on if this is okay or not because a lot of people say fish can adjust to most pH readings common in tap water, but most of the care sheets I'm finding on Sparkling Gouramis in particular say the pH should be acidic to 7.0 pH. Would Sparkling Gouramis be able to adjust to living in 7.4 pH, or should they only be kept in acidic water? I can not change that pH any lower than it already is due to my Nerite snails, whose shells will begin to disintegrate in acidic water.
I'm also wondering if Sparkling Gouramis are compatible with Nerite Snails. I have 2 Olive Nerites and a Tracked Nerite. Will they pick at the snail's bodies or bite their antennae or anything?
