sbarbee54 Ohh and BTW way I keep Red tigers at that OEBT and BTOE and all are doing well. I find temp is the key! anytime my temp gets to above 72 I see bacterial problems. I keep min at a steady 68

wicca27 i think temp plays a bigger role in the bacterial infecton when ph is 7. so they have to stay cool. keep a close eye on them and dont let it get to warm

Bananariot 6.5 with OEBT and BTOE, any higher and I just had bacterial infection issues.

Regular tigers bred anywhere, I had success with them in 7.2 pH water with sand as substrate.

Blue Falcon I kept mine at 6.8 for 3-4 months with no success. Then bumped the pH up to 7.4 and immediately got berried females. My survival rate is about 50% right now after a few batches.

Forumsnow 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.

wicca27 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

So I know people who have kept tigers from under 6.5 to upper 7's.
