My tapwater ph is over8.0 and my plants and fish do fine. I only grow fast growing, easy plants though so maybe somthing more demanding would not do so well for me. Live plants will help keep ammonia down, and therefore nitrite and nitrate will also be reduced. I just started keeping live plants in my tanks about 2-3 months ago and the effect on my weekly test results is significant. Test in mycichlid tank used to read10-20 a week after water changes, now its 0-5. Only thing different is the live plants... same fish, same food , same water. I always heard plants were good but didn't know that they're THAT good. I use anacharis, hornwort, and java fern.
