Good looking fish. I wish the colour of fins was more solid (less transparent area). Is it a big female? I like the split wen colour.

Small eye to head ratio indicates this fish is not stunted! (just like discus).

Fish scale very coarse. Looks like the previous owner did not do a good job in maintaining the fish. Do watch for any deteriorating on the scale also. Don't let your pH drop to acid level.

tot both acidic n alkaline conditions r not good for e fish...
tot it should be ok for water to be slightly acidic or alkaline
e.g 6.7-7.3ph
ammonia in acidic conditions also bcomes ammonia ions which r harmless to fishes while it is toxic in alkaline conditions... smile.gif

may i ask y did u say tat?? smile.gif
pls enlighten me on anythin i'm ignorant... smile.gif

your fish will firstly be shocked by the low ph before any amonia could harm him.
hahahahaha

ammonia and ph are 2 diff things.
so what do you think??
