I too ,stayed clear of saying ALL fish Cause not all fish will adapt. I have some tank raised Discus that adapted to my tapwater and for that, I'm thankful. I would not attempt to place wild caught specimens in this water.Ph 7.4 KH approx 10 or a little less For it would be way different than water where wild caught fish were gathered from.
The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

I was skeptical too when he told me his Ph, but he has no reason to lie to me about it, and as i stated before, his tank has always been in A1 shape and his africans thrive, i have a few of the fish that he had raised from offspring in his tank........I have the opinion, that if something works, go with it.........I keep my Ph in my african tank right around 7.8..........i also used crushed coral in my substrate to get it that high, but i refuse to use a chemical all the time to raise it anymore........No need to make a chemical soup for the fish
