Need some info/advice on Apistos
I've been considering putting some Apistos into my 28 gallon tank, with a school of cardinal tetras. I know next to nothing about these fish, so I was hoping that someone could give me some info or advice on keeping them. I'm not even sure if I would be able to keep them in my tank with my water.
The tank is 28 gallons, 24" long, 19" deep. I'm still
in the process of planting it, but I hope to have it moderatly-heavily planted soon. My water is very soft, ph of around 8.0 - sometimes a bit higher, a little lower if I'm lucky. I've been reading about putting peat in the filter to lower ph, so I'm going to try that soon.
Could I manage to keep them in this tank? Maybe if I was able to lower the ph? I would really like a school of cardinal tetras - are they compatible?? Will apistos uproot plants? If I decide to keep apistos, which types would be best to start with? Can I keep more than one species in the tank?
Thanks in advance.
