The importance of Water Quality
During our discussion, we received some recommendations for equipment for maintaining water quality.
Steven Bisset "Most freshwater fish are very adaptable, especially river fish because ph fluctuations happen every time it rains. I think that regular water changes are a must to keep fish in tip top condition"
Paul Walker "For my wild Malawi stability in the water key ph8.2 kh16 gh16 at all times. Stability is more important, even if your water is of a bit, fish can look after themselves. I use Upson salts for my kh and gh levels and bio carbon for ph levels. Sand or rock don't rise the ph, it's a old wife tail"
Thanks for everybody's input into our discussion last week. we really did provide a lot of good advice. If anybody would like to create a document on the topic for our group files, your more than welcome. Remember, there is no definitive right or wrong where water is concerned and the advice above is given based on personal experiences only. If you have any questions on this topic or anything else, please ask any of the Lothian Fishkeepers via our Facebook group.
Bye for now.
