I'd have to get a KH testing kit since I only have an API master kit that tests ammonia, nitrite, nitrates, and pH.
Really? I did not know that. Sounds like RO water would be best for my projects. To answer your questions, I'm actually interested in breeding two species, both from South America - the Apistogramma Trifasciata dwarf cichilds also known as Threestripe. I already have two males and a female. I don't know where my second female went. I'm honestly surprised the bigger male hasn't killed the younger male yet. They're in a 40 gallon community tank, which isn't really ideal for breeding, plus the pH always settles at 7.6.
The other species I'm interested in is the Starlight Bristlenose Pleco
, also known as the White Seam Bristlenose Pleco
. I have a young female pleco at 3 inches, not yet sexually mature so I have time to get things together before I attempt my projects. The Apistos will definitely be started first.
