Mollies with a pleco?
I'm curious as to how you are keeping your mollies. Some sites told me they need hard, alkaline water, while others said they really will get used to any water conditions and the pH doesn't so much mater so long as it isn't extreme.
We just got two mollies to put in our 10g with a bristlenose pleco, and I'm really worried that the water parameters that each needs are too different. I would hate to have to take the mollies back as they were a birthday present for my boyfriend :/
Our water right now is soft with a pH of 6.5. Is it better for both species overall to leave as is, or would it be better to alter the quality to more fit the mollies' standard requirements? I would hate to do that and have the pleco suffer.
Please let me know! I'm very concerned by the conflicting information I have been reading.
Thanks so much in advance
