KH for Crystal Reds?

Recommended Posts

I tested the tap at my new house and I was getting a Kh of 1-2. I know most people recommend a KH of 0; however, would they survive and thrive in a KH of 2.

The rest of the parameters were Gh-4, TDS-110, I forgot to test the pH, but based on the other parameters I'm thinking somewhere around 6.6-7.0.

Currently, at my old house I keep them in DI water with these parameters: TDS-120, GH-4, Ph-6.4-6.6, Kh-0

KH itself won't cause any problem.


but it would effect your pH.


If pH is too high, CRS would stop breeding.
