your ph is better suited for neos and tigers and even then on the higher side.

gh and kh are awesome though. if you can get the ph down to 7-7.2 you'll have some great success with neos and tigers.

yup aquasoil is better suited for CRS/CBS/PRL/TBs, tigers really like higher ph, gh, and kh then you are getting from your setup.
