when i had my large color of oebt they were in ph between 7 and 7.5. my kit does not go by 0.0's but by .5's and the color was between the 2. my lone female is in about 7 right now and is happy and molting. i think alot of it depends on where they come from what kind of water they like. i got my original 6 oebt from dk and dripped them for no kidding 8 hours and only added about half a gallon of water to what they were shipped in but they took off and did well for about a year till something happened and im sure i made it worse with all the water changes
No babies yet, just berries. But I have had 3 female oebts berry up in the past 3 days, all just reached age and got right to it. I'm at ph 7.2-7.4 kh 2-3 gh 6 tds 190 and temp 69-72. I got a dozen a little over a month and a half ago and have not lost a one. Guy I got them from had them in 6.8. Would have liked to have it there but seriyu stone keeps it up.
