Anyone have any luck with multies at a PH of 7.8?

I ask because the well water run through my softener is that.
I can control the temp during water changes , less phosphates for algae.

I also have a very inconvenient tap nearby that is straight from the well no temp control straight 58 degrees and i cannot use it after my outdoor lawn srinkler has been shut off for the winter months. (This water is better because it is very hard , PH of 8.3)
, But a royal pain in the arse to fill buckets and use two heaters and then can't use it for 6 months of the year.

Any thoughts? ( stick to Tiger Barbs Right!)
LOL

I agree with 24tropheus, they will be fine at pH 7.8 just keep it stable. I keep my multies at pH 7.5 and they breed regularly.

multies rock! you will love them... i got my first trio over a year ago and staring at them has yet to get old...

i agree with the other posts; they will be fine at 7.8. mine breed at 7.5 too... with multies i've always been advised by other keepers that stability is more important than shooting for that textbook ph value.
