picking fish for your ph
im just curious does anyone know what kind of fish would be suitable for low ph between 6.0-7.0 ive tried to raise my ph but it still goes back to between 6.0-7.0 and right now i have a molly, a platy and a guppy in a ten gallon tank
The smaller tetras and barbs would be a good fit. Your PH probably goes back down because your carbon hardness (KH) is low. KH acts as a buffer for PH swings and if it is low, your water will revert back to its original levels. I'm just assuming this from your PH. Typically, low PH is common to soft water and high PH is common to harder water.
A read of my article may help you to understand why attempts to raise your pH don't work.
I agree with previous members. If you have soft slightly acidic water out of the tap, go with soft water fish.
