Re: Hatching water
I feel I have to explain why I prefer tankwater.Fresh aged water works
also but when we have to change water evry second day.Fresh aged vater
is never the same as tankwater it will alvays have a lover Ph.Eggs can
take low Ph acording to my expirence much lover than the fishes without
taken harm.So if I use acid water from my tanks I dont have to change it
before they hatch.It is the same with my tanks acid water Ph 5-6 is good
for the plants wich then alow me to minimise the waterchanges.Have 60,
10 gallon tanks and 20 eggboxes to maitaine and if I coudent runn in
this way I have to go down to less than 20 tanks for the same work.
