Well i have high ph as well and for a 4ft i would say zebra loach, polka dot loach, dwarf chains, histies, rostratas or more yoyos. and you can lower ph with peat and almond leaves. i think oak leaves work aswell
Wow your from australia! I didn't know there were any Aussies on the forum. WHERE DID YOU GET THE ZEBRAS AND ROSTRATAS? I am quite keen on purchasing them but have never ever seen them and my lfs told me I can't get them in aus.
