Angels/Rams hard tap water
My Bolivians have been in this water for some time now, and are doing fine. The German Blues and Angels I got this past Thursday. The Rams spawned (last night or this morning) but one of the 5 angels died overnight. Tank pH is around 7.4, but 7.6 out of the sink. Will they be OK, or do I need to get the pH down?
Is your pH steady at 7.4? If your fish are tank raised I wouldn't worry about it. Tank raised fish are very durable and can cope with a variety of water conditions. A stable pH is better than the right pH. To know why your fish died we are going to need more information. Tank size, tankmates, filters, temperature, ammonia readings, nitrite readings, nitrate readings would all help.
Tankmates are Bolivians, Germans, Angels, and Swordtails. Ammonia <.25ppm, Nitrite <.25ppm, Nitrate <5.0ppm... I'm starting to think maybe it got caught up in the Chain Sword and never made it out. It was a little tough getting it out of there.
Well for one your nitrite and ammonia are a little high. There should be no ammonia nitrite in the tank at all. How long has the tank been setup?
i try to keep my angels at 6.8 ph
and i had very hard water but i have been weening them into softer water and they seem to be becoming a lot more active
