hi, i was wondering what type o fchiclids can go in water with a neutral pH. thanks
Well, that's going to be a big long list. Though alot of people nowadays suggest that a stable pH is what you should aim for. Its better than say adding chemicals to get the pH to where you want it, for it to swing back to the original later. Most fish you will see on sale, unless specifically marked as wild caught will be generations away from ever seeing a river or lake, as such they should be able to adapt to your pH (As long as the extremes are avoided).
Cichlids such as the rift valley species and certain amazonian cichlids I wouldn't recommend for a neutral pH, it may be easier if you suggested some cichlids you like, then people can say if they would do well in your tapwater.
