Yeah. I always try to maintain at around 7 to have some buffer.

seems all my normal plecos also up lorry b4 when ph low.
BUT 046 thought amazon river origin, should be acidic tolerant . I was painfully wrong

Ic. You should not have ammonia spike problem in the bag as your water is low Ph. Common Pleco quite hardy also gg? Your ph is very low? Can try to maintain at high ph 6 to around 7.

I never bothered about pH when I keep zebras. I find adults hardy, only newly borned ones are very sensitive.
