Re: AF cichlids in plant tank

Hi Tom,

 You have convinced me, after I run a small tank for a few months to get the 
feel for it I will then add a peacock to see if it effects the color or 
health. If all goes well the 125g will be next.

 I don't understand what you are trying to say in the above statement. About 
75% of my peacocks are F0's.
 Is it OK to raise the KH up and how high can I go without effecting plant 
 If I did raise the KH would it be done with baking soda and if so how long 
does the baking soda usually last? Or is there a better way to raise the KH?
