no they'd be considered poor peasants! but your point is spot on!

I am not sure that reproducing is a good way to measure the health of your fish or the condition of your water because in my 2 colonies, the Moops are reproducing and my RR's have not produced any fri yet. Same filtration. Same buffering, same salts. same water. I am just not sure that it is as easily explained as I have read in this thread. But I do think that the ES does bring out more colors then no ES.

It should as it raised the Gh. Unless the Gh is already high to begin with? Then adding ES will not affect them as they will already be at optimal levels of color...

Which Brings up another question and Forgive me for it possibly being a silly one if it's already a known answer.... Why, does the Gh affect their Color? Also Nirate levels will do the same. Higher Nitrates yeilds less vibrant colors... Any Real insite onthis would be great!

no one said that he had poor water conditions. This is why sarcasm and it childishrepliesare Always Nwarranted! It was only discussed that to simply recommend that someone doesn't treat there water with anything other than prime or the like, is Not a wise choice as tap water conditions can vary greatly per area. Which is implying that one must test there tap water first to determine whether or not the addition of other chemicals or elements are needed to ensure a "Proper" environment..

But as usual things were taken personally and childish remarks were made. So if you can't stop from taking things personal,it's probably best to keep your opinions at bay. There are onl a few people in this world that offer continued sound advice and I Haven't met any so far, especially on this forum. People can make mistakes and it's only the ones that can admit and learn from their own mistakes, whether physical or Verbal, that are worth the time to discuss things with............

as like it's been explained before this being the fifth time that if your water from the tap is 6.5 and your GH and KH is to low then your keeping fish that live in alkaline water in the wild, in acidic water in the aquarium which is WRONG! which could possibly cause harm to your fish If you don't tinker as you put it with your water. The advice is only applicable if your water from the tap represents that of lake tanganyika or some where close!


I'd say not knowing what comes out of your tap and not knowing what you need to get your water to, to keep tanganyikan cichlids then that in my eyes makes you an irresponsible fish keeper! I'm not saying you don't know yours dww-law before you churp up!

Lighten up man. It's called joking. No sense of humor at all. Btw my opinion is just that. As I have stated numerous times in this string.

Now bow down to my fish!!!!
