hi, I'm on a well water system, which gives me a very high PH (7.8) my fish require of a PH of at least 6.5- and the overall hardness reads at 140. I've managed to get the ph down to 7.3 and just lower the hardness slightly by using oak leaves. And though my fish seem to live fine in it, my Pygmy cories flash often due to the water quality. I cannot afford a RO system at the moment. But I've heard good things about peat moss. Any suggestions?
