Also, what substrate are you using and are you using RO water and remineralizing? Any tips you can give for keeping these guys would be awesome. Thanks!

oops! Just saw this, sorry about that!
I use my tapwater, which has unique parameters. My TDS is pretty low, for well water, usually around 150. My pH is 7.4ish, but my gh is 6, kh 7 which gives a general hardness of about 115. Their tank temperature is 72, and I do not use substrate. They have stacked driftwood and a lot of anubias and other rhizome type plants. Despite my higher pH, my water is actually considered on the soft side.
