Hi all

Just wondering what the general tap water readings (pH, gH & kH) for Brisbane, Eatons hill specifically, once the tank has been cycled but without any additives/buffers etc. Looking at keeping Tanganyikans so just looking at how much I will need to buffer, if any.

Cheers

If it is mainly the PH you are concerned with, simply elements that will buffer naturally.

I use a dark substrate in my Frontosa tank which gets the PH up to around 7.8. I then have around 10 handfuls of broken coral pieces in the filteration system as well a several large chunks of coral hidden in and arround the Texas Holey rock which further buffers the PH to around 8.5.

Hope that helps.
