Im now running my water area in my paludarium. Its about 10 gallons of water 7-8 usable for fish and plants. Tested my water ph and its running at about 6.7-6.8 ish. Damn color chart is kind of hard to read. Wanted to ask the experts about the range I should be trying for. I have been told the the water ph is a big deal for the growth for the aquatic plants. Im hoping for plants that will grow out above the water and some mosses. This tank is more for the plants and what they need will be what I base what kind of fish I get for the tank. I know thats kind of back-ass-wards to what most people do for tanks but I really enjoy the plants as much as the animals but fish Im kind of ambivalent to. They are more to add to the tank than a center idea.
