I will check the water tomorrow and let you know what is its from the tap. I have checked it before but I can not remember right now it could be because I have worked 58 hours this week and my brain is not working to well right now. LOL So if I understand you right you are saying if the ph goes below 7 it would be ok to add the rummys as well as having the other two fish types as well? That would be great if thats what you mean then I would not have to chose between the three. Thank you again for all your help.

I actually meant either, but in going back over the current fish, it would probably be OK. Lots of plants around the sides and back, the rummys love being among plants (do not like bright light at all), rasbora as the same. Neither is particularly "active" though rummys do like swimming room so a 4-foot is fine on that score. The Gold Barbs you have are very active, and attain 3 inches, so must keep those in mind. The rummys only if you get the pH down. You info on tap pH and hardness later will tell us how successful this will be naturally.
