My ph sits at 7.8. It's stable and never changes. I have lots of driftwood & plants in the tank. I use root tabs and Flourish Excel.
All occupants are vibrant & healthy.
The tank 100 gal and houses 7 Botia almorhae, 9 Puntius denisoniis & 1 pictus.
I'm thinking of possibly adding a bolivian ram(s?) and maybe a festivum(s?). I know that 7.8 is a little high for these cichlids.
Then there's always that old saying, "Leave well enough alone".
Should I forget about adding cichlids, consider something other than these type of cichilds, or consider natural ways to lower my ph?
Any suggestion(s) will be VERY much appreciated.
