You will have to change those water parameters if you really want to keep them. They are true Jewels when kept under the right conditions.
I agree. They are sensitive fish, and keeping them any length of time does require the ideal water conditions, IMO. It's not that difficult, to purchase RO water (at least here in the US) and add that with each water change. But as Kimmy, says, maybe better to look at Bolivian Rams. They are nice and even larger than a GBR.
