Here’s the link re: Chili Rasboras to a site I use to create an initial profile for breeding, keeping, etc:


And here’s what that page looks like:


Looks like 6.5-7.0 is common. Probably no need to forcibly drop pH much below 7.0.

You’ll want to create the preferred leafy environment.

GH / KH is a soft, so do what you can. R. O. Water can crash pH, having no buffer. Your plan to mix it in sounds spot on.

Thanks @Fish Folk very useful.

I think I'll stick with a. pH of 7 to start with and take the hardness down to the 3 to 5 range and see what happens.

I guess I can always throw some Indian almond leaves in if they don't spawn.

The advantage of chili's being even in my 5 gallon the bioload will be so low water changes will be few and far between so it should be stable

Thank god for the below, cause I have a tank full of these!


Don't believe everything you read on the internet, one of mine definitely has a carnivorous look about it when my fingers are in the tank!!!

I use chain mail gloves for sharks to be on the safe side
