Default New Black tigers and yellow neos!

Just received some Yellows about a week ago and some black tigers yesterday. I have split my tank into two separate parts of black sand and white sand, because the blacks pop on the white and the yellows look great on the black. Crappy iphone pics but I love these guys. Tey're very active and some yellows are berried already.Water is
pH7.1
gh 6
kh 0
temp 72
ammonia 0
nitrite 0
nitrate 0
TDS 154

Move your TDS up to 200 at least they will do better!

I have some KH2SO4 and MgSO4. Would adding one or both of these work as a way to increase TDS? MgSO4 might increase gh as well rigt?

What did you use to remineralize, to get a TDS of 5 @ 150. Also I would just do small water changes with RO water remineralized higher and slowly raise it. GH of 6-7 is even fine for them

Everywhere I've looked people recommend a KH of 0-1. Do you keep yours in kh 4-5?

Black and yellow black and yellow black and yellow!

I can dig the colors, but I'm more into Royal blue tigers and supreme red neos if we are doing football colors.

Lets go BUFFALO

I'm excited about certain changes. But yeah. I like the Vikings too. I live an hour south of Buf

Have you ever been to That Fish Place in North Tonowanda? I think that's where it is.

Nice! They have great fish, but I hear it used to be even more amazing.

Too bad I'm not really interested in fish lol.
