A Low PH Tank
There was a short exchange about this recently, but I'm really interested
so I thought I'd try for more : ) Have many, or any ?, of you kept a low ph
plant tank- say around 5.5 ph or so? How about a pretty-heavily colored
blackwater plant tank (via peat filtration) in that ph range? I'd really
like to hear about it- anything you'd want to share would be appreciated-
general feelings, set-up details, etc.
-what kinds of plants were you able to keep? How did they do?
-does mulm, fish poop, etc. breakdown?
-at this ph range, do the organic acids in 'blackwater' from peat
filtration have a signif. oxygen demand?
-have you kept any tetras in those conditions (bleheri rummy-noses by any
chance?)? Did you notice any differences in them there, compared to a
neutral ph/clearwater plant tank?
-are bacterial diseases noticeably supressed under conditions that might
otherwise lead to them?
Thank You Very Much!
