Somehow some of my post did not come through

pH between 4 and 7
hardness soft to very soft
NH3 0
NO2 0
NO3 < 60 ppm ideal, < 80 ppm fine. Neonates appear to be more sensitive to it than adults.
temps 79-82 F (80-82 F for neonates)

I tend to keep them close to a pH of 6 as below this the efficiency of the bacteria that convert ammonia to nitrate are reduced (even though ammonia is converted to ammonium at low pHs and is pretty non toxic).
