I think both points are true.I have tried both with great success.I only changed over to buffering the water when I moved on to wild Petro's.But I do think you should know your tap water parameter's and then decide if you need to change the chemistry.

This I think is the most important thing to do first. Thansk for Chimming in and refocusing the Thread.

You can't beat a bit of argumentative banter

As long as it does not become a personel attack, we all have a lot of ideals on how to best keep or aquatic prizes. But just remember that this is just a play to share our thoughts and sugestions with others with the same passion. Enjoy the threat,.

Mrgreen

I think everyone has their own way of doing things.Ive been keeping African Cichlids for nearly 25 years and have kept and bred alot of different cichlids from both of the lakes.I have successfully kept and bred Bemba,Red Rainbow,Nkonde
and Moliro.I will admit that Tropheus are not for everyone.What i mean is its not for a first timer.It takes a more experienced fish keeper to breed and have them thrive.We know that they are a very rewarding fish to keep but you really have to pay attention to them.Watch them daily and see how the group as a whole is doing.All it takes is 1 fish not eating or being picked on to start the dreaded Bloat and if not caught quickly it can wipe out a colony fast.I see both sides of the coin I think more experienced fish keepers like to try to keep their fish if wild to be in the optimum water parameters for breeding and color.I have tried it both ways and didnt seem to make a difference.I think it is what works best for you.All the Tropheus I have kept have bred and I think water quality is the key.Over filtration and water movement.I think people can cause a problem trying to get the parameters perfect.If you are an experienced fish keeper then and want to try to get the perfect parameters for your tank then do it.But I think its for a seasoned keeper.I use the less is more philosophy.Filtering 800 gallons an hour on a 90 gallon tank and daily water changes of 10 gallons with chlorine remover and it works for me.But like I said thats me.I say go with what works for you.Sorry for the long post
