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.

They should be able to hand it quite well, especially if you want to acclimate them or plop and drop. Unusual for them to have issues with parameter changes that minor.

I've got amanos in a tank with 0 KH and I have no clue what KH they came out of. (pet store... didn't bother testing)

Thanks! Glad to hear I can go forward with the move when the new tank is ready.
