Sids-Water Quality

Posted By: Mike55 <mpayne@centric.net>

Been thinking of picking up some sids for my tank and was wondering about water quality, ph, hardness etc. From all the info I've seen they like soft water with a ph of 6 to 6.5. Is this a must. I would like to hear from some sid owners about their water parameters and what they do to create ideal conditions for sids.
My water:
ph 7.4
dgh 7.5
dkh 5.5
Is there any reliable additive to correct my water or is using RO the only way to go. Thanks.
