Recommendations for my water parameters
I will soon be starting a planted 29gal fishtank, but I have a few questions regarding two main aspects linked to the kH and gH. I do not have a reading for my pH as of yet, but I will have it later this week.
kH = 6
gH = 11
Question #1: What rocks can I use for hardscape in order to make sure that I don't increase my kH/gH any more than that?
Question #2: What fish would you suggest for these parameters, assuming a pH of 7.0 ?
PS: The tank will be planted, has Seachem Fluorite substrate and 3 manzanita branches. Ideally, I would like to have Velvet Blue Dream shrimp, Neon Tetra, Emerald or Harlequin Rasbora, and some Guppies (either Endler or regular).
Thank you for your two cents!
