Conditions for FFF

So far, based on statistically inadequate material, but nonetheless I'll go
out on a limb here, it would seem that the Florida Flagfish seems to find
life more comfortable in slightly alkaline conditions.

Are the people who are finding these fish to be terrorists keeping them in
CO2 injected tanks?  Perhaps they just don't like to live in pH under 7?

I'm trying to collect stats on clown loach behaviour and pH correlation as
well, and so far I've had info from people whose clowns behave fine when pH
is under 7.  If it goes briefly above this level they are still alright, but
keeping them with live plants for extended periods of time in alkaline
conditions results in destructive behaviour.

Given that we are trying to maintain planted tanks and not all of us are
going Dutch style but want to maintain a community of fish in them, I think
it would be valuable information to determine which fish are affected by CO2
injection and in what way.  To say that some Florida Flagfish are not
aggressive and some are and base it on just well, shrug the shoulders and
say it's 'character' is rubbish.  They are fish.  Not intellectual giants.
The behaviour of fish is modified by environmental conditions and it makes
valuable sense to collate data on what conditions result in what sort of
