    If you look at what I put down for the nitrate, nitrite, and ammonia you will notice the I don't know, in my 10+ years of fish keeping. I have found that if the fish are happy why should you stress about the water not being perfect. I also do not check ph. I guarantee you 90% of stores do not have the right ph for their fish and their fish are fine, and unless the breeder/provider is breeding/providing something specific they don't have the right ph either.

    A true fish lover should enjoy keeping a 35 cent Feeder Goldfish as much as they enjoy keeping a 50 dollar Runchu.
