[APD] Tanganyikan Planted Tank


Thanks for your tips on the Tanganyikan planted tank. 
As far as taking the pH down that far with CO2, would
that be harder on wild-caughts than tank-raised? My
multis are F0s. I'm new to wild-caughts, so I wasn't
sure if they'd be less tolerant of conditions
drastically different to their native environs. 

Anybody know of any detritus-eaters that like or can
tolerate hard alkaline water? I love Synodontis, but
even the petricola gets a little big for my tank. (And
a little big for my wallet right now!)
