What do you do???

Hi everyone, great forum!!!

I was wondering what do you guys do to get your mollies, platies, swordtails to breed.
I would like to know your

- PH for each fish above
-PH for the general community of livebeares only (ratio of each please)
- all the tests kit answers
- food you feed and brand (live, frozen, flake, freeze dried, tablets etc)
- what you use in your water (brand of everything and name and how often you use it
- how often you do water changes and how much
- what plants do you use fake or live how many name etc

Thanks guys :)

Well I understand that livebearers need more Alkaline water. Mine is 8.2 and sits at 76 degrees. I only use Prime, have a 75 gallon with plastic plants. Do far too few water changes and only do 30 % when I do. Everytime I do 50% something dies so I refuse to do more. They get flake and blood worms occasionally. Hope it helps.
