The ideal ph for the CRS tank is between 6.2 to 6.8, it may also depend on where you got your CRS from, the best way to lower you ph is by using peat moss, not only its is natural also it will release humic acid witch will help CRS to spawn the egg .

I use Laguna Peat Granules ( they are super cheap ), it was originally for use in the pond so you need to fine it at the pond section in the store. i put it in the media bag then clip on the side of the tank . its easy to change and maintain rather then put it in the canister , unless you have a HOB filter then its ok .

Laguna Peat Granules Benefit

1 super cheap
2 one bag last forever
3 super natural
4 easy to get eg pet smart, big al
5 Natural Humic acid

This is one of my top secret, and it will help your CRS breed!!!

I cheked with BigAl's in BBY, Large Garden Store on Lougheed HWY, Home Depot and none of these had it in stock.

We grabbed ours at Rogers. They have a smaller box in the filter section, or a larger bag in the pond section.
