  6. I agree with growing it. Super easy, and can be done in pots. My plants have just the start of flower buds, yay!

  8. Hey! I'm a biochemist (but currently being a mummy) and no one respects my opinion. LOL FYI, 'scientist' is a term without value these days. Even high school grads who work as lab monkeys call themselves 'scientists', lol. And that's cool, we need more people interested in science. What I do disagree with is people using the term as an authoritative title. I'm a biochemist, and my knowledge of climate change is minimal.....totally independent topic. I am not a climate scientist by trade.

  21. I have a maingano in my mbuna tank. She's pretty chilled, compared to the kenyi, auratus and red zebras, but can certianly hold her own. Havent kept labs and rusties, so I can't tell if they're similarly aggressive, sorry. Edited: Maybe a Cobalt Blue? M. callainos is the species name. Not sure how aggressive they are, but they're a solid blue.
  22. My tap water is naturally around an 8, and this is what I've been keeping my new red tiger oscar in. My thought process was that a stable pH is better than a fluctuating, lower pH. Whether this is correct, or not, is why I'm here. Having googled scholar articles, I can't find much legitimate information about keeping fish in a pH different to their natural habitat. Most of the research centres around the outer limits of acceptable pH, lower than 6-7 and higher than 8. Obviously, I wont be doing this! But, I did learn a little bit about the amazon river, and how oscars adapt to low oxygen levels, their metabolism etc...very cool stuff. Further on, I am not sure what pH fish shops and breeders keep their pH at. I really probably should have asked where he was sourced from, but naturally he's not wild. Next time I will. (There was no pH printed on the glass) So, my question is. What effect will a higher pH have on a farmed fish, whose natural habitat is at a lower pH? Negligible? Or long term suffering? Most forums I've taken the time to read about on this have been slightly hysterical, with little factual (eg., gill function, osmo-regulation etc) evidence to back it up. Also, I don't have access to any paid-for journals, sadly. If any experienced fish keeper can help, I'd be very thankful. I don't want to harm my fisheh! Cheers!
