What's your PH?

Livebearers need basic alkaline water, while corys prefer extremely soft water.

May I ask- why are you using CO2?

wow ! looking nice in there.
keep up with your water changes,as our fish these days are so inbred
that they are weak,especially the guppys.
great getting more plants.
don't know if i asked you this already............you got any friends,rellies,with
tropical fish ?
getting donations of stuff from established tanks can be invaluable.

my water is pertty much the same as yours.
