    Hi Nick

    All sounds good to me. Don't worry too much about the basic chemistry of your water. Boesemani's are tough and will adapt to what you give them. They do prever alkaline water but don't try to get the exact figures every time. Your supply water will also differ from time to time.

    Ratio wise you can even go 1:1 as females are tougher to get hold of as males. Temperament wise they are not like live bearers that will haras a female to death, but rather a male sparring session that doesn't even involve the females directly.

    Just enjoy them as I have in the few years of keeping them.

    FIY I saw earlier in the week that McMerwe is sold out on males but has a couple of females in stock. Just in case you’re struggling to get enough females.
