how much of a kH drop can amano take?
I have some amano in an established tank and they seem to be doing great. I wanted to move a couple into a new tank and though the water parameters are similar, I have a kH of 6 dh in the old tank and it's only about 2 in the new tank. I think the kH in my old tank from a Wonder Shell I add a while ago (before I added the amano), so it's artificially inflated, hence the discrepancy between the two. It's slowly going down in my established tank, but pretty slowly because I only do teeny water changes because the tank is very lightly stocked and seems stable.
Is this drop in kH going to be too hard on the amano? I can make minor adjustments on both ends to ease the transition, but I'd rather not if I don't need to.
pH is 7.2 and gH is 7 dH in both tanks. I have no idea about TDS.
