never got myself in to msn..but maybe. I'll let you know. I really want to get in touch with him and ask him how he keeps the soft water going in his 10 gallon so that the tonina's will grow. I know lowering ph and keeping it acidic is the way to go, but I've tried that and it hasn't worked out. Maybe you can ask him or let me know what forum he attends and I can get in touch with him there. THanks!

hey,

just download msn. its very convenience to use. most of my friends use that. :lol: he attends couple Taiwanese forum tho.

i can answer those questions for you coz my Toninas are all from him for free. :wink: im crazy with those things now. honestly, i think some people just keep a major point as secret, and dont want to share with others. i cannot count how many times that i hear people say pH is important blah blah blah those kind of BS... pH is not a big issue with success for Tonina. kH is a key!!! if you have RO, Flora Base as substrate moderate light, dont worry about anything, they will just be fine. if you dont have RO as me and my friend. we use soft resin. two type of soft resin in the market. one can lower ur pH, and another one can lower both pH and kH. we are using 2nd one. pH in LA is crazy high. over 8.

only thing that you need to worry is kH. Tonina needs very soft water. kH around 2. less is better. pH around 6.8 and moderate light are good enough for Tonina.

hope this helps and good luck,

Tim
