Wait, so these don't need fast flowing water? And here I was getting a filter with a 17x turnover rate...
So then what is the secret to keeping these guys long term? Is good oxygenation enough in a regular aquarium (which can be easily achieved by sticking in an additional airstone with an air pump) or should the nitrates be really low too?
I have no experience but will opinionate this... They either need highly oxygenated smooth flowing water or a little more water flow with co2 injection to my understandment Either way we both can still be wrong depending on the species that you stock. It's kinda like from a Danio to a discuss type of thing. Some can make it through what ever but others just need a little more cleaning to keep the ammonia down from interfering with oxygen and co2. I believe that if your water is clean then you should be good to go. Just don't have a still tank with co2 and a weak filter.
