Synodontis granulosus Ph Question

My LFS has 4 Synodontis granulosus..

I want to get one but online info says Ph 7.8 to 8.5...

They are keeping them at pH 7 and they say I am ok to do this also????

Will he be happy in my tank (Ph 7)?

Thanks

These fish are from the Rift Lake area of Africa. Their home water is highly alkaline, pH of 7.8-8.4. They will do ok in neutral water, but would thrive at higher levels. The great thing about fish from this area is that most are highly adaptable. I would try to raise the pH by filtering over coral, maybe even add crushed coral as a substrate.

The only thing I'd add to what was said, is that I'd ask what fish you currently have. If you have a lot of S. Americans I'd probably pass on the fish if you planned to raise the PH. I keep my S.American plecos at 6.0 and I know they would be irritated in water above 7.4. So think about what you already have.
