hi i was wondering if anybody knew if it's ok to keep firemouths on there own in a community tank with other cichilds?
Firemouths are Central American, and therefore should be kept in hard alkaline water.
Medium to hard yes, but not particuarly alkaline. Most sources state a pH around neutral from 6.5 to 7.5 Our caresheet has been amended at the lower end, thanks for input
