Hello All... So I am currently cycling my first 10 gallon tank and have been measuring water parameters every other day. I realize that one must take pH with a grain of salt during the cycling process, but my pH has consistently been around 8.0. I realize this is on the higher end for freshwater aquariums, but have also learned that the act of adjusting the pH actually kills more fish than the pH itself. That being said, I have also heard that a lot of the fish at the pet stores are much hardier than what are caught in the wild, and can more easily adjust to non-ideal parameters. So my question is... with a pH of 8.0 (assuming this is what it settles on after the cycle completes), what can I stock my aquarium with?
