How important is PH? (Urgent)



So I'm planning on buying some kuhlis tomorrow, and that is my ph. All other parameters tested fine but I'm a bit concerned about the ph. I'm actually kind of confused since the color isn't even really on the chart, but my best guess would be 8.2-3. I am also planning on buying some peat moss tomorrow. The kuhlis actually NEED to be picked up tomorrow, I don't feel like explaining why but they do. What should I do?


A high pH like that would suggest also very hard water, which is more of an issue. I would not add fish till you get it sorted.

Is the pH of your source water any different (after sitting for a day, if it's tapwater)?
What substrate and decor do you have in the tank?
What other fish?

Hi, did you get your fish?

How are they doing? Generally a high PH can be adjusted to and also a high GH unless its really high, up towards 300 or so.
