Angel Fish and Hard Water??
Howdy everyone. My name is Andy and I have been on and off with keeping fish since I was a little kid. I have a new 29g tank and it currently has zero fish in it, and I would like to change that.
I remember one of my first tropical fish was a pair of small Angel Fish that I somehow kept in a 10g tank for I know a good 3 years before they somehow jump out one day while I was at school (and died). So, I was wanting to get back into an Amazon-based aquarium but I know Amazon fish do better in very soft water, and my tap water is very hard. So I am wondering if I will have any luck with keeping Angels in such hard water? It's the same water as I used several years ago when I had the two in my 10g tank, so do you think it's worth a try?
It seems like ever since I got into the technicality of fish keeping (pH, water parameters, species compatibly, etc.) I have had hardy any luck keeping fish for a long time. I had better luck when I was just a little kid with a 10g tank and put anything I wanted in there :)
Thanks for any help,
