Need suggestions based on my water
The water in my area is very hard but my ph is low. I wanted to get Apisto's since I fell in love with them but I also don't want to get cichlids that I have to constantly add things to the water to make them confortable. Apisto's I know, like low ph with soft water so I'd have to add something, probably chemicals, to soften the water. If I do africans, I have to increase my ph, more chemicals. I want a cichlid that stays somewhat small, 4 inches or less, that aren't going to kill my pleco or cory's. I don't care for Serverms(sp?) or the flowerhorns. I need suggestions since I'm only a few weeks away from being completly cycled so I have to start planning. Plus, any water changes I do I have to do very slowly since the fish I have now are used to they're conditions. Oh yeah, I've always had salt in the tank since I had livebearers so it would be no big deal to have to maintain salt.
