They do not require certain pH at all but these fish can be quite sensitive to ammonia, nitrites and nitrates. These fish are also likely to be stressed and mortality rate during transport is often high however once they are acclimated, these fish can be very hardy and will live very long.:)

Mine have always been aggressive. I'm planning on adding one soon to my 55g. They do get large too I have a friend with 3 of them and they are about 6 inches and beefy looking. At that size they don't seem aggressive. They are actually skittish in his tank.

These fish are awesome and though they may be a bit more complicated for a beginner, I highly reccomend them.
I've trimmed the above quote to leave enough so you can tell what I am talking about.

I want to say that this is one of the very best posts I've seen here. Well written and very informative. While I do not have a place for an RTBS in any of my tanks just now, I will certainly keep them in mind as a fish for the future.
