    Raising PH

    My 100L Tank has a PH of 6, at least this is what it reads when testing (using API Master Test Kit). I was wondering if I should go about trying to raise the PH and if so, what the best way to go about doing this is?

I thought that they were supposed to be mid to top dwellers in...

    Cuban Limia

    Hello everyone. I just recently purchased a couple female cuban limia fish from a petstore around me. I did some general research on them and was prepared for the buy.
