im moving up town where the water is softer than where im at currently and the PH drops slowly.
and im wondering if i put dolomite into my canister would it help me???

i dont know the parmaters yet, but i met some one in the same area that would breed angel fish w/out RO
and she told me the tap was at 7.5 and at w/c day it was at 6.5.
the PH drop was so slow that her fish would not get stressed.

im afraid w/ co2 -i would have a bigger issue.

anyone else here have similar water

It dropped on water change day to 6.5 temporarily, likely because the levels of CO2 are higher after dumping a bunch of water into the tank and supersaturating the whole thing with air. From there it returned to 7.5. Odds are you've got a KH range somewhere in the 2-6 area of things, which is just fine for angel fish. Adding CO2 will not effect the KH, which is what stress levels tend to be more about in a planted aquarium. You may even find that you want to drop the KH a little if it's sitting on the higher end, and egg viability seems to be an issue.
