Re: [APD] How do you guys do water changes?????
Poe, I found that if your local fish store that you trust keeps discus then
after a week or so you find that they can take the local PH. Or at least it
has worked with my tank. I've had these discus for over a month and they are
doing great. I was afraid to add them at first as all the books said I
needed a ph of 6.8-7.0, they must not have read that book , good luck, Hope
all turns out fine. Mark B.
