Proper levels

Postby underdogg101 » Fri Apr 11, 2008 8:55 pm

Can someone tell me what are acceptable levels in an African Cichld tank?


I know they should all be low, but was is acceptable limits?

What is the best PH to maintain? THANKS!

Ammonia = 0
Nitrite = 0
Nitrate = 0-20 ppm best, but some will keep up to 40 ppm.

pH = stable 7.5 plus. Stability is more important than having high pH.
