I need some info for algae eaters that can withstand high pH zones. and will get along with me Kenyi and others. I heard gold nugget plecos don't get that big and can withstand the high zone pH, but anyone else have an input?
African ciochlids FTW!!!

someone who works at Petco. said that all plecos (or any algae eater, really) can't withstand the high range pH, he has some Cichlids and the algae eaters that he had only worked occaisonally, and even when they survived, the Cichlids beat him up a lot.

The flying fox can stand higher pH range, but past 8 is bad.

What pH is it, exactly? I've kept BN's in 8.0 and commons in 8.5

Yes, but keeping commons in that high a pH is mean :(

Only the best for plecos
and danios
and goldfish
and angelfish

Most of my favorite fish are so simple...

COMMON plecos
Danios are very common
Goldfish are the most common pet in the trade
Angels have been around in the trade since the 50s.
