I am still working on setting up and cycling my 10 gallon aquarium. I have planted it with Java ferns, cryptos and an anubia. I added several small nice pieces of Mopani wood and is not coloring the water much.
I have an API freshwater master kit and I am surprised my pH is reading at 7.6! I thought we had slightly acidic tap water. What other testing should I be doing other than what this kit covers??
I am considering adding some peat to the filter. Any other suggestions?
I would like to keep a pair of honey gouramis, a small school of celestial pearl danios and a group of pygmy corys OR salt and pepper corys.
