Ultimately I reckon a bit cooler water, perhaps mid-70s. These fish are from Argentina. Not hard and not too soft, but just right...
For now, I have them in quarantine at 80degF. I replace their water with water from another tank, rather than new. PH is around 6.7/just under 7.
When they are fully fit and a bit bigger, I might move them. I was thinking of keeping them in a tank with S Barbatus. Its a question of being sure the Aky get their share of the food.

The Aky are £15 It's actually not a bad price for a fish so rarely seen in the trade. And good reason for a little extra tlc at this stage.
