At my local fish store, they have a new fish in their tanks for sale called the Rio Xingu Leporinus. It was a species discovered 7-9 years ago and I am planning to add it to my tank but I heard the Leporinus needs softer water parameters Of 6.5-7.0. My 180 gallon mixed Cichlid tank has a pH of 8 but I heard successful stories of people keeping them in these types of waters. I also have two tinfoil barbs and three clown loaches that I know need 6.5-7.0 pH but they are linking happily and healthily in my tank for months now. My question is that the Rio Xingu Leporinus is fairly pricey but I really want it but I don't want it to die. Will it be ok in my Cichlid tank with a pH of 8?
