Water Hardness


Recommended Posts

This is a question for those of you who have done extensive breeding....

I think I remember daryl telling me that if I keep my fish in hard water they won't breed.

Right now my tests are:

pH 8.4

Gh: 10 d (179 ppm)

Kh: 20 d (358 ppm)

The reason I ask is because I would REALLY like to get my fish to spawn in the pond this summer (even though I know they haven't been properly winterized). Will such hard water make it impossible for them to ever breed?

I'd like to make plans to decide on fish and if this is the case, I won't buy any fish that I would like to breed until I am done with school in a little over a year.
