Second, according to the attached link, this fish has higher acid concentrations in its stomach than we normally see, and these acids are secreted into the aquarium with its waste, causing high strain on your buffer system and rapid swings in pH. You need to test pH every morning and add the appropriate buffers as necessary. I suspect that running a powerful hang on filter with large amounts of activated carbon (changed weekly!) would provevery helpful.
and yes i was reading that to be for i got him so i have got every thing ready to keep my tank nice for him and all my other fish
