I would like to add a group of Harlequins to my 26g tank. Right now I have a group of 8 Corydoras Aeneus and I am just waiting for the plants to grow enough to make the Rasboras comfortable.

I checked my Ph yesterday on the API test and it reads 7.6, the same as the tap water. Does that mean the water is too alkaline for the Harlequins? Anyone has experience keeping them in water with levels higher than 7.0?

I really appreciate all your answers

My PH is also 7.6 and I keep harlequin rasboras in one tank and tetras in the other two and everybody is fine and has been for about a year. Alison

They'll be fine - I had Harlequins for over 2 years in a pH of 8.1 with no problems at all - they're great fish!

That is the reason I have decided to get Harlequins as opposed to maybe Tetras or Celestial Pearls, aliray, they seem to be the most peaceful of all schoaling fish I've found and hardy too.
