Rivulins of the old world, JJ Scheel, TFH press, 1968.

Not only is pH not important but he docuemnts moving fish
from any ph to any other pH with no harm. And fish from soft
water to hard water with no harm.

Hard water to soft water causes osmotic shock though, and he
recommends no more than 50% decrease in dissolved solids per day.
